2021–2022 Counseling Psychology Community Webinar Series Returns

As we deepen into the new academic year, we are excited to announce that we will be bringing back the Counseling Psychology Community Webinar Series for another cycle! Last year, we so enjoyed being together with all of you for these community events and look forward to another round.

The inaugural webinar of the 2021-2022 Counseling Psychology Community Webinar Series is A Thousand Paper Cuts: Working with Embodied Microaggressions in Clinical Practice and Everyday Life, presented by Dr. Rae Johnson on Thursday, October 21st from 4:00-6:00pm PT.

In this webinar, we will explore the traumatic imprint of sexism, racism, ableism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression with a particular focus on how to recognize the impact of micro-aggressions. More specifically, we will discuss how these “everyday slights, indignities, and put-downs” are often conveyed unconsciously through our nonverbal communication, making identifying and responding to them more challenging. Tools and strategies for working with this significant but often overlooked form of oppression will be offered, including practical suggestions for supporting clients and colleagues in naming, hearing, resisting, and resolving them.

The Counseling Community Webinar Series provides an opportunity for students, alumni, and faculty to engage in rich and meaningful conversation. These events will not be recorded. Please note the Zoom details for the October 21st webinar:
