Globally, reconciliation has offered a powerful path toward emotional, social, and cultural healing and progress. Reconciliation requires acknowledging and atoning for the wrong done—asking for their victims’ forgiveness while resolving never to repeat the wrongs and working to restore their victims to full humanity as fellow citizens. Thus, gaining a better understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion is imperative to becoming a more effective and productive mental health professional. This workshop will explore some significant concepts and interventions to consider when addressing diversity, equity, inclusion, and racial conciliation.
• Identify the roles that diversity, equity, and inclusion play in mental health
• Articulate culture-specific interventions and techniques for psychologists and licensed mental health professionals to improve human behavior at work and create evidence-based practices to help organizations and workers thrive
• Compare and contrast strategies to address sensitive issues such as racism, prejudice, age, sex/gender discrimination, and social injustice within our society at large
