Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a dynamic theoretical framework that surfaced in the late 1970s as a critical response to the colorblind justice pedagogy occurring in schools of law in the United States (Delgado & Stefancic, 2001). Through its core tenets, CRT examines how race and its intersections with other markers of identity are social constructions that lay the groundwork for the systemic and institutional oppression of marginalized groups (Aldana & Vazquez, 2019 ). This practice-focused training will first provide the basics of Critical Race Theory through an overview of its tenets, which provide a deeper understanding and context regarding the systemic factors and institutions that impact the lives of our clients. Then, the training will focus on the praxis (theory in practice) of Critical Race Theory when working with clients.

Learning objectives: 
•    Understand basic tenets of CRT that can be applied in clinical social work
•    Have engaged in critical self-reflection to understand the importance of one’s own positionality in clinical social work
•    Have engaged in practical examples that will aid in effectively working with clients from diverse backgrounds
