This training will assist direct service professionals in reflecting on their own power and privilege within their personal identities, while also considering the intersectional context of youth clients they may assist in out-of-home care. Through personal assessment, group discussion, and multimedia, participants will define microaggressions, bias, power, privilege, and learn to recognize them. Finally, through group activity and roleplay, participants will develop personal strategies to intervene when witnessing the perpetration of damaging messages and embody what it feels like to respond in uncomfortable situations, particularly if clients or colleagues are not responsive to feedback.
