Sometimes discrimination is so commonplace it even ends up in our professional guidance material!  This workshop uses published examples of mental illness microaggressions and discrimination to teach participants how they can recognize and respond to this kind of behavior.  Through the use of case study examples, participants will learn how to consider different responses to microaggressions and discrimination.  All participants will receive access to takeaway tools they can use in their regular practice.
