Participants will engage with a panel of experts who represent diverse roles and ideologies in professional counseling. Through guided discussions, lived experiences, and interactive activities participants will focus on ways they may effectively work within “difficult dialogue” situations. In addition, participants will be provided with evidenced-based strategies that address ethical guidelines, enhance culturally responsive counseling skills, and help counselors to navigate challenging discourse.
Attendees will learn to narrate and process their personal history with “Difficult Dialogues”.
Attendees will identify common culturally-based “Difficult Dialogues” that counselors experience in their work with peers, clients, supervisees, students, staff, and members of their community
Attendees will identify strategies for addressing “Difficult Dialogues” with individuals who hold a diverse spectrum of beliefs (religious, political, etc.) incorporating ethical and competency standards
