Description of webinar: Ethnic minorities and other underserved clients experience unique stressors such as microaggressions and oppression. Counselors need to be aware of unique challenges and barriers that might present when working with diverse clients. This webinar addresses how to apply to TEAM-CBT in a culturally humble manner that may improve outcomes with diverse populations.
1) Identify two unique challenges for underserved and ethnic minority populations
2) Describe how experiences of being underprivileged and oppressed result in trauma

I have worked with Sunny for years and he is awesome. He is a brilliant therapist and good friend. You will love this free seminar!
