         “Are we in this together?”:  

Holding space for the differential effects of COVID-19 on bi-cultural families in therapy.

June 25, 2021 - 1:15 - 4:30 pm EDT

Radhika Sundar, MA, RP, RMFT-SQ       To register please click here. 

Canada faces a mental health emergency. COVID -19 has exposed the divisions in contemporary society and the flaws in matters of social justice, equity and fairness. Calls for mental health supports are at a record high. During this time, many of us, including those in the Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities, are facing daily struggles in dealing with the corona virus pandemic. Researchers in Policymaking indicate that systemic racism has two-fold effect on the BIPOC community during the pandemic, due to racial inequalities in health and environmental factors.

This presentation focusses on the impact of the pandemic from a Canadian perspective and its differential effects on bicultural families in therapy. The topic will be presented in two parts.

PART- 1 – 1:15 pm to 2:30pm

“Are we in this together?”: Holding space for the differential effects of COVID-19

As therapists, we are seeing more families reaching out for help. As a member of the bridges group, I plan to initiate a discussion forum among participants and reflect on our varied experiences in therapy and how we can turn the tide on inequalities in therapy. Join us during this important discussion and lend your voice!

PART-2- 2:30pm- 4:30pm

Holding space for bicultural families in therapy

The ability to protect oneself and one’s family greatly depends on the kind of resources that families and communities can draw on during a crisis situation. During this part of the presentation we shall explore:

  • What is a bicultural family and how they are vulnerable during the pandemic
  • The relative importance of culture, religion, tradition, values and social norms and customary law
  • The importance of social connectedness and agency when dealing with threats within the family and the wider community, like domestic violence, gender-based violence and hate crimes.
  • How do we assess and support the level of family cohesion in bicultural families? 
In this interactive session, power point slides and case examples will be used to discuss the differential effects of COVID-19. Members can count 3 CEU for attending this webinar. TO REGISTER: Please click here.

Interpersonal Violence, sometimes called domestic violence or domestic abuse, is reaching epidemic proportions and affects men, women and children of all races and social and economic levels. This form of violence includes psychological, physical, emotional and financial abuse which often create feelings of victimization and impotence in those who are subjected to this form of behaviour. Using the couple as the basic unit this workshop will examine how to determine the appropriate type of treatment as well strategies for individual, couple and family engagement in these important interpersonal relationships.

Sharon Ramsay, MDiv, RMFT, asked us to share the following information about a project called Just Relating. 

Since my presentation at the CAMFT 2019 National Conference, I have been involved in a project that has been life-giving for my practice of Emotionally Focused Therapy.  I have had the privilege of meeting weekly with EFT therapists from the US, Iran, and Zimbabwe to understand how to integrate the sociocultural context of people’s lives into attachment-oriented therapy.

Together, we have produced a project called www.justrelating.org

 Our conversations have shaped this training to be inclusive of the diversity that people bring to their relationships and to the ways in which they navigate life.  We also hope this work encourages therapists to grow in awareness of our own presence in the room and the willingness to be vulnerable.  

 Attachment gives us a frame and EFT gives us the map. My Canadian heart hopes that sociocultural attunement will give us flexibility to absorb the shocks in the road.

Treating Couples -  November 5 - November 6, 2021 

Couples therapy is complicated and challenging; the complexity of our socio-political-cultural contexts during this worldwide health crisis has made it more so. The persistent stress of the pandemic has been a strain on couples and therapists alike. Effective couples therapy requires the ability to understand and address many types of intersectional identities, family forms, ethnicities, and relational challenges within the larger cultural context. Increased challenges are pushing therapists to address emerging issues. To learn more and to register please click here
