New Jersey Association for Multicultural Counseling conference, Friday, November 7, 2014 (8:00 am to 4:00 pm)
Keynote: Multicultural Counseling with Men; Adventures in Returning Home. Roberto Schiraldi, EdD,
This conference will focus on helping to sensitize therapists and others to the unique perspectives that impact men’s lives, especially given their particular cultural backgrounds, so that we might improve our ability to create a welcoming and empowering counseling relationship. The day is planned to provide a nourishing and supportive environment in which to interact with other caring professionals who are committed to making a real difference in the world – to reduce the violence and to make it safer and healthier for all. The conference will provide a variety of presentations and workshops designed to assist clinicians in working with boys and men from multicultural backgrounds.
