It's time to shake things up... our way!
Welcome to Evolve, 'The Gathering''. This is a forum created by Creative Arts Therapists of color, for creative arts therapists of color
because it's a good chance that you are one of few among your co-workers. As such, you're probably well aware of the cultural responsibility you hold when showing up for your clients that look like you.
The mission of Evolve is to provide a space for therapists of color to come together to share our lived experiences, learn best practices for honoring our culture in working with our clients, and to gain support from each other in a field that can at times make us feel isolated. This conference is an opportunity to promote a greater understanding of the unique needs of therapists of color and create a safe, inclusive environment for professional growth and development. Together, we will explore intersecting ways we promote what we do and how we are advancing the field.
What's more, you have the opportunity to take part in unique learning environments where we will dive into topics through thought-provoking group discussions specific to issues that affect us and panel conversation topics on navigating our field as black and brown therapists. We're taking full advantage of the tropical Tulum landscapes with outdoor experiential sessions led by your fellow CATs in art, music, or dance.
The pièce de ré·sis·tance! Your attendance gains you credits for Continued Professional Development!
