AOP Group Consultation
Evidence based practice is a trap. We are drawn to evidence based practice to legitimize our professional practice, just to find out it may cause harm to Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour due its inherent bias of whiteness. This consultation group is the space to challenge evidence based practice and radicalize the way you work with bodies of culture.
This group aims to do the following:
  • Build connection with therapeutic communities
  • Adjust evidence based tools to include Black, Indigenous, and bodies of culture
  • Develop confidence in creating BIPOC tools
  • Developing a practice of stepping away from whiteness
