What Is Racial Trauma? Understanding How Trauma Affects the Black Community

 
Date: Tuesday, August 11, 2020
Time: 2:00 p.m. ET
Duration:   1 hour
 
  
Racism, whether subtle or direct, has long-term impacts on the mental and behavioral health of Black communities. While COVID-19 and racial injustice protests may have brought on new trauma, years of systematic racism, discrimination, and microaggressions have forced Black communities to live in a constant state of high alert, causing traumatic stress.
 
Join us Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. ET to hear Dr. Jamila Holcomb, Ph.D., LMFT discuss how racial trauma affects the Black community and ways both clinicians and organizations can better connect with Black clients. During the webinar, you’ll learn:
 
  • How racial trauma affects the mental, emotional, and physical health of the Black community
  • The impacts racial discrimination can have on Black youth and emerging adults
  • Strategies to help clinicians and organizations better connect with their Black clients
  • How organizations can help all staff members understand their own implicit bias
 
Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
