This 1-hour program will expand the professional's understanding of the ethic of care based on liberation psychology theory, method, and practice overall and with special populations. This course will provide an introduction to the use of liberation psychology as an aligned practice with the American Psychological Association’s call for ethical multicultural, justice-informed practice. This workshop will provide the theoretical grounding of Liberation psychology, which is particularly relevant to the times of hate crimes and the trauma of oppression. Attention will be given to the ways in which awareness of discrimination, cultural identities, and personal as well as cultural strengths should inform assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment. 

Presenters will give an overview of this decolonizing approach to psychotherapy as well as the ways it may be applied with Black clients and LGBTQ+ communities. You will be able to:

1. Identify three (3) components of liberation psychology

2. Describe two (2) practical considerations in assessing and conceptualizing a client from the perspective of liberation psychology

3. Describe two (2) specific interventions from a liberation psychology framework
