Ally, Supporter, Collaborator, Co-conspirator in Clinical Practice Webinar

Layla Saad, author of Me and White Supremacy states, “you cannot dismantle what you cannot see, you cannot challenge what you don’t understand”. This webinar invites participants to explore the characteristics of white supremacy and reflect upon how these characteristics may create unknown barriers to showing up as an ally in clinical practice. The differences between the definitions of allyship, collaborator, supporter, and co-conspirator will be explored in addition to the importance of self-reflection in clinical practice. The experientials offered will encourage embodied self-reflection and art-making for participants to explore the following: the differences between the terms allyship, collaborator, supporter, and co-conspirator; participants' comfort zone in clinical practice; and the importance of expanding their growing edge to create inclusive co-created spaces in clinical practice.

Presenter: Melody Gamba, MA, R-DMT
