Clinical Reflections on the Current Political Climate:
Creating a Space for Dialogue and Understanding
Drs. Indhushree Rajan and Stephanie Haibloom will lead a round table discussion regarding the many ways our client’s lives are affected by the social-political climate and how as psychologists we might not be prepared to discuss,
or avoid, these issues.
Dr. Indhushree Rajan is a Registered Psychological Assistant (PSB94020992) who practices individual, couples, and family therapy under the supervision of Paula Bruce, Ph.D. (PSY16248). For the past nine years, Dr. Rajan has been focused on work with sex trafficking survivors in California and India, and is an internationally published author on the global sex trafficking crisis. In clinical settings and in the nonprofit sector, Dr. Rajan has spent nearly 20 years working with child, adolescent, and adult survivors of physical, sexual, medical, and psychological trauma, in diverse cultural and socio-economic communities in California. In her private practice, Dr. Rajan enjoys working with a very diverse spectrum of clients of different ages and backgrounds, presenting with a wide range of clinical issues. Her extensive experience ranges from work with the LGBTQ community and people going through life and career transitions, to people dealing with dating and relationship issues, and immigrant populations including first generation and newly emigrated individuals and couples working through cultural assimilation and identity issues.
Stephanie Haibloom, Psy.D., is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY28618) currently working in community mental health at a DMH contracted clinic, where she works with a diverse adult and senior population. Dr. Haibloom also has a part-time private practice in Northridge, CA where she sees adolescents and adults. Dr. Haibloom’s clinical experience covers a wide spectrum of issues including substance abuse, anxiety, domestic violence, and depression. Her clinical interests include self-esteem issues, video games, grief and loss, advocacy, assertiveness, and anger management. Dr. Haibloom primarily employs cognitive-behavioral and solution focused techniques but tailors her approach to best suit her clients’ needs.
Attendees will be able to identify and have increased awareness of the challenges for both, the clinician and their clients in their own unique ways, in the current political climate.
Attendees will learn tools for increasing their comfort discussing such issues, model advocacy when appropriate, and learn to provide safety and understanding in the clinical setting.
Attendees will be able to apply the increased awareness and tools in their clinical work, including advocacy.
