Show Notes:
  1. Racial discrimination impacts mental and physical health.

  2. Therapists must be aware of the impact that social issues as well as cultural issues may have on their clients.

  3. Most clients want to know that their therapists can tolerate discussing these issues.

  4. Therapists can consider ways to be inclusive in their marketing messages and address that they understand the stigma around therapy in Black and other marginalized communities.

  5. Therapists can also look at their practices, organizations, and associations to see if they're inclusive and representative of the people you're trying to serve.
