Event Description

-Do you understand racial trauma and it’s impact on your clients?
-Would you like to have actionable steps to help clients impacted by racial trauma?

Society has always argued that race is a social construct. Although race is a social construct, the question is, “does racism hurt? The answer is yes. Racism is a violent act that can “scar the soul, and puncture the psyche” (Hardy, 2013). The impact of racism leaves people emotionally convoluted and at times lacking the words to express their feelings. The trauma caused by on going racism can impact children and youth mental health in very significant ways.

This workshop will explore Racial Trauma and the impact on children and youth mental health. We will explore not only the impact of racism on children and youth mental health but actionable steps for helping professionals and parents alike to help with not only naming racial trauma but finding ways to assist in the naming of and healing of racial trauma.
