Description: This interactive program will help clinicians contend with bigotry in psychotherapy. We will consider three major ways in which bigotry emerges in the clinical situation: when the patient is being bigoted in the therapy hour; when the patient brings in post-traumatic or otherwise disturbing material related to being targeted by bigotry; and, perhaps the most difficult, when the therapist's own latent bigotry surfaces in the transference/countertransference dynamics. We will discuss aspects of psychoanalytic theory that help to conceptualize such clinical situations, and explore practical strategies for addressing these various manifestations of bigotry in the clinical situation.

CEs: 1.0 CE Available

Program Level: Introductory

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify different ways in which bigotry manifests in the clinical situation.
  • Participants will critically analyze theoretical concepts that aid in conceptualizing the role of bigotry in the clinical situation.
  • Participants will explore practical strategies for navigating bigoted material that arises in the clinical situation.

Addressing Climate Change: State and Local Policy Opportunities 

Virtual

Date: Thursday, May 2, 2024
Time: 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. MDT

REGISTER HERE

Please join APA and Div. 34 (Society for Environmental, Population, and Conservation Psychology) for a webinar, “Addressing Climate Change: State and Local Policy Opportunities” on May 2, from 12:00 - 1:00pm EDT. Through presentations and discussions with two experienced climate leaders, this webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of relevant state and local policy mechanisms for addressing climate change, as well as information and skills for engaging policymakers at these levels.

As stated in APA’s recent report “Addressing the Climate Crisis: An Action Plan for Psychologists,” responding to the climate crisis is an essential task, requiring the participation of all fields and sectors of society. Unless major reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are made quickly, climate-driven adverse impacts on human health, well-being, and equity will intensify. Psychologists are uniquely qualified to take action themselves to promote policies and programs for mitigating and adapting to climate change.
