    Develop an Antiracist Lens for your Clinical Practice - Part II

    A live webinar - 2 Clinical Contact Hours - for social workers and allied professionals

    About this Event

    Develop an Antiracist Lens for your Clinical Practice - Part II

    Presenter: Keita Annie Whitten Foster BSW, MSW LCSW, SEP

    Founder: Ready, Set THrive!, The Harriet Tubman Movement Coalition of Maine, and Community Dialogues on Racism as a Public Health Crisis in the Midst of COVID-19

    2 Clinical Contact Hours approved by NASW Maine

    “Understanding racism and white supremacy are endemic to the development of all authentic relations between humans, including humans and nature. My life work has become about cultivating capacity, spirit, compassion, resiliency, grace, perseverance, and healing. Our stories are unique, yet we are not alone. There is no hierarchy of pain or suffering. The challenge is recognizing how these experiences continue to shape our current understandings and relationships about ourselves and each other so we can co-create authentic social engagement for all our relations.
