Microaggressions & Becoming Culturally Responsive

African Americans have experienced the weight of being subjected to cultural biases that existed long before they entered this world. In this interactive webinar, participants will examine, discuss, and challenge issues related to cultural differences; consider the difference between being culturally sensitive and culturally responsive; learn self-care tools that will help them care for themselves as they continue this process; and explore ways to abandon thoughts and actions that interfere with how we interact with each other.

As a mental health advocate with Pennsylvania's Department of Corrections (PA DOC) Lynn Patrone recognized the value in bringing WRAP to all levels of the prison system.  In this webinar recording, you will hear of her journey in sharing WRAP with both prison staff, administrators and inmates.  As you can imagine, it has been both a challenging and rewarding adventure that continues to grow.

Advocacy is one of the core concepts of WRAP, yet navigating the waters of the mental health world can be tricky.  You want to be strong and assertive, but you also need to be heard.  This webinar will help you understand how to use the skills, knowledge and wellness tools you already have to advocate for yourself and your peers.  You will learn how to navigate the overwhelming bureaucracies of the mental health system and engage others – including your supervisors – to work with you to achieve the outcomes you and your peers deserve.
