In this interactive virtual workshop, participants will, first, receive a historical review of the role and formation of whiteness in the social work profession. Next, attendees will be guided through an experience meant to reflect upon the role of whiteness, white norms and white habits in their personal and professional lives and how to de-center, disrupt and deconstruct whiteness. Finally, an exploration of skill-based practices on noticing when whiteness permeates practices and how best to work alongside the systemic challenges of whiteness in clinical settings.

As whiteness permeates all of us, this workshop is not limited to clinicians racialized and/or identified as white. However, this workshop will best be received by clinicians with some introductory understanding and experience around whiteness. So, already have an introductory understanding of whiteness and want to dig deeper? Join us!
