Webinar: What is Racial Trauma?
August 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Relias hosts: “What is Racial Trauma?” 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.
Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. CT, Dr. Jamila Holcomb, Ph.D., LMFT discusses 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
