Self of the Therapist: Multicultural Awareness of Implicit Biases

Presentation Description:

This presentation will review the intersection of social location between therapist and client(s) in addition to supervisor and supervisee, the significance of implicit biases and how we can perpetuate harmful narratives. Additionally, attendees will be able to identify ways that we can support our clients while being culturally competent and trauma-informed.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify three characteristics of social location.
  2. Identify three ways that self of the therapist can influence treatment with BIPOC clients.
  3. Identify three ways clinicians can utilize this knowledge in treatment with BIPOC clients.
  4. Identify two ways clinicians can utilize this knowledge in treatment with BIPOC clients specifically in supervision/consultation with other clinicians.

    Whether you’re a veteran or newly licensed MFT, AMFT, MFT trainee or student... we are celebrating you!

    Speaker Bio:  

    Valerie Uy is a Chinese American LMFT and social justice advocate who is passionate about creating spaces of healing, connection and safety. Valerie strives to be aware of her own privileges and implicit biases in regards to anti-racism, spirituality, sex positivity, consensual non-monogamy, and LGBTQIA+ affirming practices. She inspires others through her authenticity and compassion to learn more about civic engagement and activism to support marginalized communities, and has a vested interest in supporting BIPOC communities through their experiences of racial trauma.

    Valerie has been the speaker for conferences such as Asian Mental Health Collective's TransformASIAN Conference, EM Collective's Asian Mental Health Conference, ECAASU's 'Turning the Tides' Conference, presented in panels for mental health regarding 'Intergenerational Trauma' and 'Stress & Burnout', and spoken at UC Irvine's Psyber Guide's Drop Ins regarding mental health.

    Valerie received her Masters for Marriage and Family Therapy at Alliant International University, CSPP and currently works at SeaPort Family Therapy Services in Fountain Valley, California. She has a passion for working with couples and individuals, specifically interracial couples, with racial trauma, infidelity/betrayal trauma, and substance use. She works through an attachment-based and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) lens to help identify deep- rooted hurt and pain that impacts her clients’ interpersonal relationships.

    This event is made possible by the generous support of 

    OC-CAMFT's Board of Directors and Sponsors.
