As professionals, we recognize the importance of representing the concept of cultural justice as informed by race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and other factors that plague our society’s quest to appropriately manage our intolerance for diversity. In this webinar, the presenter will provide insights into certain injustices that are perpetrated by mental and behavioral health professionals, demonstrating our practice of micro and macro aggressions from a professional hierarchical orientation. This presentation will expand on professional concerns exemplified in NAADAC, DSM, SAMHSA, NIDA, and other entities informing our profession. It will also provide students with client feedback approaches to enhance more efficient and effective facilitation of client rehabilitation.


Marjorie Barbara Lewis, PhD, DMin, LMFT, LAC, is a Colorado state approved trainer for the credentialing curriculum in the areas of certification as an Addiction Technician/Specialist and licensure in Addiction Counseling. She has been training students since 2002. Most recently, Lewis was invited to share insights at the Jefferson County Mental Health Center to assist clinical supervisors in recognizing professionally-based microaggressions. She has the ability to see beyond the obvious issues around race, class, gender, and sexual orientation into an awareness of our professional tendencies based on what we learned through traditional training. Lewis is the recipient of the Denver Urban Spectrum Award for African Americans who Make a Difference (February, 2022).

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to describe how intolerance for diversity is not a character flaw to be ignored but a character trait to be appropriately managed.
  • Participants will be able to explain the two stances that must be addressed to avoid distraction as facilitators of behavioral change: majority and minority. 
  • Participants will be able to summarize how self awareness and insight are key to our political and societal responses of compassion to our clients, but also how our professional traditions challenge our client’s progress toward rehabilitation.
Content Level


  • Beginning level courses introduce learners to a content area; include information about a condition, treatment method, or issue; and involve learning and comprehending content.
