Cultural Competency Series

Power, Privilege & Interrupting the Cycle of Oppression (4 CEs)

This training will assist providers in reflecting on their own power and privilege within their personal identities, while also considering the intersectional context of their youth clients in out of home care. Through personal assessment, group discussion, and multimedia, participants will define microaggressions, bias, stereotypes, and prejudice and learn to recognize them in action. Finally, through group activity and roleplay, participants will develop personal strategies to intervene when witnessing the perpetration of damaging messages, whether through institutional and internalized oppression.

Participants will learn to recognize internalized oppression in clients and explore the use of decolonizataion, harm reduction, and non violent communication to interrupt internalized oppression in clients.

Kelsey Pacha Consulting conducting the training supports the work of institutions and individuals in increasing their capacity for cultural humility and social justice-informed institutional change.
