Fall Clinical Conference

Culturally Competent Trauma Treatment
with Dr. Laura Brown

October 13, 2017
9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Dr. Laura Brown, a clinical psychologist in Seattle, has spent her career working with survivors of childhood trauma. A recipient of many awards for her work in trauma treatment and feminist therapy, she is the author of 11 books, including Feminist Psychotherapy, and dozens of articles and chapters. She founded the Fremont Community Therapy Project and is a therapist, trainer, consultant and supervisor.

Dr. Brown’s model of cultural competence focuses on self-awareness of the therapist’s own intersecting strands of identity, cultural norms and biases and the ability to be sensitive to the nuances of human difference. This model of cultural competence is inherently integrative in that it focuses on people, not theories, and on distress, dysfunction, strength and resilience, not specific diagnoses.

Conference Objectives

  • Understand how culturally competent practice enhances clinical effectiveness through improvement of the therapeutic alliance.
  •  Develop enhanced awareness of culturally informed countertransference and transference dynamics as they play out in therapy, especially when different is non-obvious.
