Thursday PFI #2 Examining Race and Culture in Collaborative Practice from the Inside Out

The Collaborative Practice community is primarily white practitioners serving primarily white clients.  What is needed to change this to a more inclusive professional community serving a broad and diverse clientele?  This Pre-Conference Institute will look at this question from the inside out.  We will first look at what each of us needs to do on the inside to be more aware of how our own race, culture, and history affect our beliefs, thoughts, reactions, and behaviors as well as impediments to talking about race and culture.  We will then examine how the functioning of our societies and systems within them impact us and our racial and cultural relationships, including in Collaborative Practice.  With this foundation, we will explore our motivation to change our approach to race and culture and the action steps needed to carry out a change to a more inclusive Collaborative community serving a broad and diverse clientele.
