Workshop Description:

This workshop will be firmly rooted in somatic (body-based) therapeutic practices, as we explore the racial and cultural identity markers that undeniably permeate our relationships with our clients. Participants will be supported in investigating their own somatic cues that may signal implicit bias, while furthering their ability to broach the subjects of race and identity with their own clients. Finally, we will begin the work of integrating a range of somatic practices and interventions into each participant’s therapeutic tool belt.

 

Level of Difficulty: Introductory

Target Audience: Practicing mental health professionals 

 

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify their own somatic markers that may signal implicit bias.
  2. Develop tools and language to broach the subjects of race and identity with clients.
  3. Integrate one or more somatic practices into a current treatment plan.

She is a social justice counselor who is fiercely committed to examining her own identities, both of privilege and marginalization. As a counselor, she works to uplift and validate the experiences of folks in marginalized locations, and to support folks in privileged locations to recognize and “spend down” their privilege without getting stuck in shame or sucked into a savior complex. Tajah specializes in working with interracial and multicultural couples and families.  

Tajah is on the faculty at Naropa University in the MA Somatic Counseling Psychology department and is passionate about supporting student counselors-in-training in developing their awareness of sociocultural identities of privilege and marginalization, with a goal of better being able to engage in an authentic therapeutic relationship across differences.  

Along with her business partner, Deb Silver, Tajah also does organizational consulting work which integrates somatic and mindfulness practices with understanding intersectionality and actively recognizing and interrupting oppression.  

Tajah is a Philadelphia native and University of Pennsylvania graduate.
