Most mental health clinicians working in schools are working with youth who have had challenges in school. This workshop will explore how our socialization in schools contributes to our belief system around authority and impacts our practice with youth and families. Inspired by the #defundthepolice movement, this workshop will ask you to consider your experiences in schools to unpack how we have been socialized to accept or reject authority and authoritative practices as a necessary part of our work with youth and families.
