Do you want to contribute to breaking the cycle of systemic oppression that our BIPOC clients face?
Then, the monthly accountability circle is for you.

Unfortunately, anti-racist practice is not an obligation in the mental health industry. Whether you are a coach, counsellor, or therapist, many of us have never learned how we can navigate our white privilege ethically in our relationships with clients. Our unawareness impacts BIPOC clients and BIPOC people in general negatively and can be harmful. The time to change this is now. As white mental health professionals, we have a responsibility to break the cycle of systemic violence against BIPOC people. A continuous commitment to white anti-racist practice and taking care of our white privilege is the only way how we can get there.

In this group, you can do your work without unnecessarily burdening BIPOC people and move torwards white anti-racist practice. 

How can you participate?

The program "Unmasking White Privilege" consists of six groups sessions (1.5 hrs) and two 1-on-1 coaching sessions. The next cohort starts on November 8, 2023. The group sessions run on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The meeting starts at 1:00 pm PT/ 2:00 pm MT/ 4 pm ET.

Early Bird Pricing is available until October 15, 2023.

Excellence in white anti-racist practice

While each person has their journey towards anti-racist practice, white anti-racist practice is at risk of being performative since we have privilege towards BIPOC people. We strive to provide excellent quality with our program, therefore each participant needs to complete a written exam at the end of the program. The exam is designed to test your understanding of and ability to apply the principles of white anti-racist practice and navigate white privilege healthily.

After completing the written exam, every participant will be awarded a certificate of completion along with a personalized evaluation of their competency level in anti-racist practice upon full attendance.

Our instructional approach encompasses a diverse array of methods, ranging from engaging presentations and interactive breakout sessions to insightful self-reflection exercises, didactic lectures, engaging Q&A sessions, and other dynamic techniques.
