See below for a full description of the workshop:
Intersecting pandemics have created a national mental health crisis in the United States. Additionally, racism has been declared a mental health pandemic. Many Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) experience racial trauma. Mainstream therapeutic approaches do not address the complexity of racial trauma. This webinar focuses on psychotherapeutic approaches to racial trauma. Race-informed psychotherapies grounded in social justice action such as liberation, ethnopolitical, and decoloniality will be reviewed. A racial trauma therapy including assessment and treatment will be discussed.
The Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy, APA Division 29 is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy - APA Division 29 maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
