Workshops & Trainings
"Pam makes everyone feel appreciated as a colleague and contributor to the process of new learning, and her genuine love for the subject matter makes her a stimulating & fun presenter." -- Mary Ann Boyle, Director, NW Behavioral Health, Bellingham, WA.
My workshops are aimed at providing an empowering, informative, and fun learning experience. I emphasize the ways in which multicultural awareness and knowledge of diversity can deepen our compassion, understanding, and ability to connect with others. I use a variety of approaches including individual and group activities, humor, and case examples that keep people interested and engaged.
Therapist trainings also include more specific strategies for increasing the effectiveness of assessment, diagnosis, and therapy with people of diverse identities. I thoroughly enjoy teaching these workshops and look forward to the opportunity to share this important information with you.
