Description

S. Kent Butler with a bit of “Realism” and “Authenticity” will use his personal life story to speak truth to the effects of privilege on his own mental wellness and resolve, while sharing best practices for removing culturally biased barriers. “RAW” will also highlight how to successfully balance counseling and self-care with social justice advocacy. This presentation will provide clinicians with insights and “Wisdom” that encourages them to intentionally get into “good trouble” as they proactively work on behalf of their students and the clients they serve as co-conspirators fighting against injustices on a global scale.

Difficult Dialogues will empower counselors with the tools necessary to create safe and brave spaces and engage clients and students in meaningful and courageous conversations on topics related to equity, inclusion, and diversity, a critical skill set for today’s global environment. An open and honest guided discussion will provide attendees with an opportunity to share and process their own personal narratives in relation to ethnicity and culture.
