I have worked in a program called Multicultural Family Preservation program at a non-profit organization in which counselling services were made available to family's of an ethnic minority origin where there were child protection concerns. This is where I learned the importance of adopting culturally sensitive language for therapeutic practice, as well as adopting some models and techniques (i.e. joint family living systems being the norm, differences in parenting styles, etc). I have also been passionate about this topic through personal endeavours that has seeped into my practice as seen within my fiction novel that entails a lot of themes of racism, prejudice, homophobia and how this can be detrimental to individuals lives and well-being. My social media pages, my interactions with my clients, me as a person - I feel all actively engage in decolonizing my practice just by being a living breathing example of how growth can occur when you combat biases and assumptions and create a more inclusive space of healing.
Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in anti-racist practices, policies, and systems in their care model?
