Beyond Events

Why Attend Beyond Events?

Beyond the Session is a conversation series designed to foster dialogue among clinicians on challenging topics that we rarely have space to address. In Relationship HQ’s commitment to challenge the status quo of traditional psychotherapy, Beyond the Session events provide a space for clinicians to learn, examine, explore, and shift the beliefs, values, and practices that underscore our current way of doing psychotherapy, with particular attention to decentering whiteness.

Through experiences that provoke self reflection, Beyond the Session events aim to support clinicians in “doing our work,” and encourage each other and our profession to evolve in our consciousness and cultural proficiency.

Especially for:

Clinicians

Beyond the Session: Navigating Power and Privilege in Psychotherapy: Part 1
Beyond the Session: Navigating Power and Privilege in Psychotherapy: Part 2

Tuesday, September 1 5:15pm – 8:00pm • A Virtual Event

Each individual holds multiple identities including but not limited to race, ethnicity, culture, class, gender, sexuality, and ability status. These identities have a profound effect on how a person makes sense of, moves within, and experiences the world, particularly as it relates to power, privilege, and access to resources. We are currently witnessing heightened local, national, and global unrest regarding the grave and tragic ways society has unapologetically failed to respect, demonstrate equality, and even recognize humanity towards certain identities – particularly black identities.

Since therapy is often considered a microcosm of society at large, clinicians have a responsibility to acknowledge, confront, and protest the ways in which we, like society, have also failed to fully see and embrace those in our care, those who we serve. Building on Beyond the Session: Navigating Power and Privilege in Psychotherapy Part 1, this session will explore and offer a framework for addressing dynamics of power and privilege in the therapeutic context with particular focus on ways to address race, white-supremacy, and anti-blackness in clinical work.

This session will offer clinicians the opportunity to:

• Discuss challenges in navigating power, privilege, and
equity in therapeutic contexts
• Explore a framework for how to think about power, privilege,
and equity in the therapeutic dyad
• Discuss how to apply that framework to reflect on and explore
race, white-supremacy, and anti-blackness in clinical work

Please note:
you must have attended a Beyond the Session: Navigating Power and Privilege in Psychotherapy Part 1 session in order to attend this event.

Wonderful! This was my first time going to therapy. I felt comfortable immediately and made a great deal of progress in a short period of time.
