About This Training

Did you know that approximately 26% of people in the USA have a disability? Despite the fact that the disability community is often referred to as the "largest minority" in the United States, I have observed that most mental health professionals are woefully unprepared to engage with this community in a way that is culturally competent. 

If you feel like you already know the basics of cultural competence for the disability community, try answering the following questions: ​

  • Why should we use terms like "disabled" instead of "differently abled"?  

  • Why is saying "let me know if there is anything I can do to help" is NOT the most effective way to discuss disability accommodations? 

  • Why is disability representation incredibly low among psychologists in the USA? 

If you had trouble answering any of these questions, this training is right for you! This 3 hour recorded ethics training describes how we as mental health professionals can practice anti-ableism with our language, how to ethically discuss accommodations, and how to increase disability representation among helping professionals. I provide trainees with reflective exercises and specific examples of ethical practices regarding things client autonomy and justice for the disability community.

 

...If nothing else, you need your ethics CE credit, right?
