Teaching MultiCultural Competence

We’re joined in this engaging episode by Dr. Jade Logan, Assistant Professor at Chestnut Hill College. Dr. Logan lets us in on what it’s like for her, as a professional Black clinician and supervisor, to teach cultural competence to psychologists of varied races and backgrounds. 

As part of training, psychologists spend a certain number of hours in Clinical Supervision. Clinical Supervisors guide therapists through personal blind spots or biases, and encourage self-awareness. This often includes difficult dialogue. The area of multi-cultural competence can be one of the most difficult but necessary topics to discuss.  

Come on in.

Shrinks After Hours Intro Session

We’re thrilled to introduce our new monthly feature and the two new co-hosts that are an integral part of it: Holly Sawyer, PhD, and Allison Gibbs, LCSW. We interviewed them at different points during Season 1 and for this feature we invited them to join us in dynamic, intersectional, not-so-clinical conversation. 

We’re excited to have them join us and hope you find meaning and entertainment in our conversation. Join us anytime by reaching out and telling us what you think. Also, if you ask us questions, we will answer them on an upcoming podcast.

March to End Rape Culture

The session in which we discuss Rape Culture and the March to End Rape Culture (MTERC) with our guest, Arika Gold. Arika is a dedicated activist and community organizer. The MTERC is an annual event to raise awareness for Philadelphians about the widespread issues related to rape culture and what is being done to end it. 

Rape Culture is … (listen to Amanda Spitfire’s poem in our bonus episode!).

Also, rape culture is … teaching girls and women to take measures to prevent rape instead of telling boys and men not to rape, light sentencing for rapists, rape jokes and people defending them, not believing people who say they were raped, street harassment, certain lyrics in pop music, support for athletes and celebrities charged with rape, blaming victims for destroying a career, blaming victims…

Surely you can add to this list!

The March to End Rape Culture is a safe space for survivors and inclusive of all genders, sexual orientations, abilities, ages, and races. 

This year’s March to End Rape Culture is scheduled for Saturday, September 28, 2019, from 11:00 am – 2:30 pm.                                  Rain or Shine at Thomas Paine Plaza (across from Love Park).
