Ableism, Racism, (DisCrit) & the CRCC Code of Ethics - Oh My! (Ethics)

About this Session

This training explores the intersectionality of ableism and racism within the rehabilitation counseling profession. Funded by the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition, the presenters delve into the historical and contemporary implications of racism and ableism, emphasizing the intertwining of these forces in shaping societal attitudes and policies. Using a Dis/ability Critical Race Studies (DisCrit) lens, the presentation highlights the complex relationship between race and disability, offering insights into the systemic disparities faced by multiply-marginalized populations. The presenters also connect these issues with the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) Code of Ethics, discussing relevant sections and advocating for multicultural competence in the counseling relationship.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how racism and ableism are intertwined and how their interdependence perpetuates structural and systemic inequity faced by multiply-marginalized populations.
  • Explain the importance of reducing racism and ableism in the rehabilitation counseling profession and why that is ethically and professionally responsible.
  • List ethical practices and strategies Rehabilitation Counselors and other professionals can use to engage in active work that takes an anti-racist and anti-ableist approach.
