This day long workshop held by the Ontario Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT) will introduce the Multicultural Relational Perspective as an approach to working effectively with clients whose lives have been maligned by the invisible wounds of socio-cultural trauma. Specific strategies for addressing the hidden trauma wounds associated with marginalization, oppression, and stigma will be provided. Special attention will be devoted to an examination of critical Self of the Therapist issues that may facilitate or impede effective engagement and treatment with oppressed clients. The workshop will be didactic with experiential features.

This training will be presented by Kenneth V. Hardy, Ph.D. a Professor at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the Director of the Eikenberg Institute for Relationships in New York City.  He is an internationally recognized clinician, author, educator, and consultant.
