Given the current sociocultural and sociopolitical climate, the call to systematically engage in social justice work is crucial. Despite the continuously growing body of scholarship on social justice-oriented topics and the infusion of social justice theory into therapy and teaching, there remains little discussion on what social justice work looks like and entails, limited practice-based instruction, and political and social activism can even be discouraged within various institutions (e.g., the academy, professional organizations, counseling centers/practices). This webinar aims to facilitate a discussion on how to put social justice theory and research into practice within various stages of professional identity (i.e., student, ECP, and mid-career professional).

How can counseling psychologists take action to address anti-Semitism in their classrooms, clinical experience, and advocacy efforts? Counseling psychologists across training levels (e.g., student, early career professional, mid and late-career professionals) from diverse religious/spiritual and cultural backgrounds come together to discuss the types of anti-Semitism and the conditions that allow this type of oppression to foster.

Infusing Trans Issues into Counseling Psychology Supervision and Training: Dialogue between Supervisees and Supervisors 

Wendy Gonzalez-Canal, MA, lore m. dickey, PhD, and Anneliese A. Singh, PhD

April 17, 2017 (Monday) at 12:00 pm EDT/11:00 am CDT/9:00 am PDT

The APA endorsed the Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Clients (2016) in 2015, and there are ample opportunities to infuse the use of the guidelines in psychological education, teaching, practice, research, and advocacy. Presenters discuss these opportunities, with a special focus on how supervisors and supervisees can work together to make their training sites trans-affirmative and culturally-responsive.

Take care~
