Graduate Student Counselors of Color Event - Challenging Imposter Syndrome: Resilience in Spaces of Oppression

As you enter into the professional world of counseling do you ever question…
Do I belong here?
Am I qualified enough?
Can I make the transition from academia to the workforce?

You are not alone. These are common concerns and fears that graduate students and post graduate professionals experience every day. Being a person of color in the mental health field adds an additional dynamic that can heighten our doubt about our role in this work. Connecting as a community allows for us to share and overcome the internal and external barriers that can keep us from doing this necessary work.

Please join us for this critical conversation as mental health professionals of color share their journeys and experiences. Panelists include:
Carlos Encalada, MSW, LICSW
Ugbad Hassan, MSW, LICSW
Sima Kulshreshtha, MSW, LICSW
Nancy Namkung, MSW, LICSW
Julene Pommert, Ph.D., MA, LMHC
Moderated by Tanya Ranchigoda, MSW, LICSW

All students who identify as counseling students of color (MSW, LMFT, MA, M.Ed, etc) from any graduate school are invited to this free event.
