Clinical practitioners and the educators who train them should be prepared to work with individuals from a variety of racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. However, critical conversations around bias, marginalization, and oppression are all too often relegated to the background of – or completely absent from – coursework in clinical disciplines. In many disciplines, most clinicians come from outside of the underrepresented communities they work within. The failure to include a strong basis of social justice understanding within their training can result in clinicians who are underprepared to effectively provide culturally appropriate treatment, support, and advocacy for each of their clients.
Anti-Oppressive Intervention has become a core piece of the clinical curriculum within the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at MGH Institute for Health Professions. Join us for a one-hour webcast where our expert instructor, Indigo Young, MS, CCC-SLP, will share how incorporating an Anti-Oppressive Intervention approach into clinical education can be used to reduce disparities in both education and healthcare. You will learn about the model MGH uses and how it can be applied in various clinical settings to give clinicians concrete tools to be more effective in providing each client with the best possible care.

This program is designed for faculty who work within clinical settings themselves, as well as those who teach future practitioners within clinical disciplines. Faculty Chairs and those who work within the realm of Faculty Affairs and Centers for Teaching and Learning will also benefit from this training.
