The only way to begin easing the racial divide is to allow the love of God to be the bond that strengthens relationships. Counselors, churches, and community leaders can, and should, play a vital role in leading the way as Ambassadors of Reconciliation. Counselors and caregivers must show themselves to be culturally competent when consulting, training, working with clients, or providing leadership in their communities. Unfortunately, many of us are not equipped with the knowledge or resources necessary to effectively handle such tasks. The purpose of this Webinar is to provide resources, increase cultural awareness, and equip Christian caregivers to effectively promote racial reconciliation and healing within their practices and ministries, as well as their communities, families, and churches.
- Explore culture-specific counseling interventions and techniques to incorporate in their Christian counseling with diverse populations
- Identify the roles the Church, race (culture), and diversity play in mental health and racial reconciliation
- Compare and contrast strategies to address sensitive issues, such as racism, prejudice, discrimination, and social justice within the Christian counseling setting and society at large
