Presentation Title: 
Racial Healing: Practical Activities for Counselors to Explore Racial Privilege, Confront Systemic Racism, and Engage in Collective Healing

Presentation Description:
Dr. Anneliese Singh will describe core racial healing strategies that counselor educators and supervisors can practice in the aim of collective racial justice and liberation. In doing so, Dr. Singh invites people to explore their own racial healing so they can build stronger relationships across multiple races/ethnicities to identify and transform structural racism within institutional settings. In doing so, Dr. Singh draws on the human rights and freedom movements within counseling, and the unique role that counselors have in freedom and liberation movements.
