"Real Talk", a clinical consultation/support group developed with the oversight of the CSCSW's Diversity, Equity and Transformation (DET) Committee, the purpose of which is to provide a space for clinical social workers who identify as being Black, Indigenous, Mixed Race, or Person of Color (BIPOC) to meet on a monthly basis. The focus of this group is to provide an opportunity for networking, building solidarity, exploring intersectionality and decolonizing our practice. 

Please note that this group is for individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous or People of Color (BIPOC). This email reminder is sent out widely to all contacts and is not filtered by how individuals identify; therefore, if you have received this email but do not identify as BIPOC, we appreciate your support and allyship, and ask that you respect the intention of this group by not logging in to the meeting.

Alicia Martinez is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is a board member of the California Society for Clinical Social Work, serves as CSCSW's Northern California BBS liaison, as well as co-chair of the CSCSW Diversity, Equity and Transformation Committee. She currently works as the Clinical Director for an adult psychiatric hospital/IMD.  She serves as a field instructor for MSW students and oversees ASWs in clinical supervision as they strive for licensure. 

Alicia is of mixed race and a first generation American of Mexican decent. She is passionate about utilizing indigenous/culturally responsive healing practices to address issues of intergenerational trauma, identity, self-love, and advocacy.  Alicia believes healing deep wounds of the soul is empowering for one's mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing. 

She has worked with various populations in a variety of clinical settings as a clinical leader, psychotherapist, and psychiatric social worker within intensive community outpatient programs and inpatient psychiatric programs with the veteran, homeless, TAY, Adult, Older Adult, and justice involved populations. Alicia also has experience in international social work; working with women, mothers, and children in poverty.  As a board member she hopes to use her role as a platform to further assist social workers and students in reaching their goals and potential. She hopes to build relationships with fellow members and serve as an advocate for the Social Work profession and marginalized groups.

Her goal for this upcoming BIPOC space is to provide a safe space to heal, cope, process, and support one another.  

This group is FREE; however, donations to CSCSW or the JAF Scholarship Fund are welcome.
