Education Description

The practice of mental health counseling and therapy is a political act. As therapists, we have an ethical responsibility to carefully contemplate our power and influence. We are invited to advocate on behalf of the people we serve each time we conduct an assessment, write a note, or assign a diagnosis. Our actions have the power to change the course of people’s lives when they are often at their most vulnerable. What would you like to do with your power and influence on behalf of the people you serve? This presentation explores the politics of therapy with women who are impacted by intimate partner violence. Explore frames of empowerment while learning beneficial institutional advocacy skills used to navigate the powerful interconnected systems that compose a coordinated community response.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Social Workers
