Over the years mental health professionals have made great strides in developing more diverse and culturally competent training programs. However, despite this progress researchers have expressed concern that even though more attention is being paid to multiculturalism, the disability community is still being left behind. I hope this training can provide practical interventions so providers can engage in allyship instead of micro aggressions.

Attendees will learn:

  • How we can practice anti-ableism with our language (and why we should say "disabled" instead of "differently abled"). 

  • How to ethically discuss disability accommodations (and why "let me know if there is anything I can do to help" is NOT the most effective response). 

  • How professionals can increase disability representation in our field (and why disability representation is so low among psychologists).
