2 Cultural/Social or Ethics CEUs 

See My Color: Why Racial Colorblindness is Unethical 

This CE webinar fulfills the DE requirement for this renewal period.

Nearly sixty years after Dr. King's speech, I Have A Dream, racial disparities continue to exist in various systems, including healthcare, education, the criminal justice system and those impacted by poverty. As a counselor, not only is it unrealistic to be racially colorblind, it is dangerous and does more harm than good. If you don't see my color, you can't see me. And if you can't see me how can you empathize with my racial experiences, accept my whole being and validate my perspectives.


Course Overview

  • Acknowledge racial colorblindness as a racial microaggression that upholds white supremacy
  • Evaluate the ethical implications of being racially colorblind in practice
  • Identify 3 racial disparities that exist and the role in recognizing race in order to advocate and empower clients to fight against inequities
  • Define cultural humility and explore strategies to increase interpersonal and intrapersonal cultural humility to improve rapport building and alleviate further trauma
