Course Information

DAY THREE: SYSTEMIC INEQUITY: INSIGHT INTO DISPARITIES AND INSTITUTIONAL BETRAYAL

The third day of the series will focus on discussing theoretical concepts related to discrimination and oppression (on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, religion, age, and/or nationality). We will discuss health disparities and explore how to counter such effects through our own practices as providers. Participants will learn about the concept of institutional betrayal, including the characteristics of institutions that are linked with institutional betrayal. We will explore steps that individuals can take to promote institutional courage. We will discuss applications to working with clients who have experienced institutional betrayal. We will also explore participant experiences that can include institutional betrayals within various institutional contexts including workplaces, religious organizations, law enforcement, etc.

This one day course is for 4CE
