I Don’t See Color: How Your Own Cultural Identity Shapes Your Clinical Practice

Do you see race and cultural identity when you look at your clients? Chances are you do, and we suggest that you should. Race and cultural identity have a substantial influence on communicative practices, and to ignore such key aspects of identity is to render us less effective—and potentially harmful—clinicians. We will provide you with a framework for reflecting on cultural identity, both yours and others'. We will also highlight examples for how “seeing color” will help make you a more culturally competent therapist.

While this course was originally produced in 2017 with school-based SLPs in mind, we find the concepts to be applicable broadly.
