About this Event

Lived Experiences & Trauma: The Black Perspective - An Online Interactive Series for Mental Health Professionals.

Topics that will be covered during this series:

On Demand: Ancestral Trauma

March 2: Urban Trauma 101

March 9: Why Race Matters When It Comes To Mental Health

All sessions will take place from 7:00PM to 9:30PM EST and are CE eligible

Recordings will be available for all registrants for 90 days

This workshop qualifies for 7.5 CE Hours. ***See details within the continuing education section.

Target audience: Psychologists, Social Workers, MFTs, Counselors

Course content level: Beginner & Intermediate level

During this training we will cover a variety of trauma specific topics, like Vicarious Trauma and the different forms of microaggressions against people of color.

To understand the psychological trauma carried by many black people, we need to acknowledge two things. Firstly, the unconscious bias within belief systems that can stimulate and propel certain attitudes about black people and secondly, the colossal impact of systemic racism.

February 17th - Ancestral trauma - On Demand

Psychotherapists generally acknowledge that a client may have a reaction to recent events that have roots in the past. When it comes to systemic racism, this can include unhealed intergenerational wounds such as psychological and social trauma passed down from previous generations.

The Black community suffers from an increased rate of mental health concerns, including anxiety and depression. The increased incidence of psychological difficulties in the Black community is related to the lack of access to appropriate and culturally responsive mental health care, as well as prejudice and racism inherent in the daily environment of Black individuals.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how racial trauma affects the mental and physical health of the Black community
  • Demonstrate how racial discrimination can have a long-lasting effect on Black youth
  • Identify strategies to help clinicians and organizations better connect with their Black clients
  • Discuss how organizations can help all staff members understand their own implicit bias
  • List race-related stressors that can affect the mental health of socially disadvantaged racial and ethnic populations.

Agenda

7 pm to 8 pm - How racial trauma affects the mental and physical health of the Black community. How race-related stressors that can affect the mental health of socially disadvantaged racial and ethnic populations.

8: 15 pm to 9 pm - strategies to help clinicians and organizations better connect with their Black clients. How organizations can help all staff members understand their own implicit bias.

March 2nd - Urban Trauma 101 - 7:00PM to 9:30PM EST

Urban trauma is a term commonly heard but rarely discussed in formal settings. This form of trauma is probably the most misdiagnosed or undiagnosed trauma. A study from the American Psychological Association showed how chronic stress is a long-term form of stress, derived from unending feelings of despair/hopelessness, as a result of factors such as poverty, family dysfunction, feelings of helplessness, and/or traumatic early childhood experiences. "Our goal with this workshop is to show how individuals who are directly impacted by urban trauma can be unaware. We offer attendees an opportunity to learn how easily one can become numb to the violence, as if it’s just another day in the hood. Acquaint trainees with a specific urban trauma lived experience story.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the Urban of Trauma experience.
  • Connect Urban Trauma to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, while using real-life experiences and ACES study.
  • Link Urban Trauma to intergenerational PTSD, addiction and Incarceration.
  • Discuss long term physical, emotional and psychological impacts on individuals, families and communities.
  • Discuss how to build relationships for clear communication about issues related to reentry, trauma, race, addiction, incarceration, and mental health.

March 9th - Why Race Matters When it Comes to Mental Health 7:00PM to 9:30PM EST

Protests across the globe are taking its toll on the mental health of black people.

The significant role that race and systemic racism play both historically and in today's world can, and is, affecting individuals psychologically.

As a psychotherapist, the impact is often felt in the consulting room with black clients who are experiencing anxiety, anger, exhaustion and a feeling of powerlessness in the face of racial inequalities and injustices Black client’s experience can be misinterpreted by a white therapist and can lead to dangerous misdiagnoses. Psychotherapy for black people needs to be a safe space where they can talk about racial trauma, with an assurance their experiences will be heard and without fear it will be used as a weapon to subdue. A somewhat naive attempt to promote equality in the consulting room has been implemented through “colour-blind racial ideology”, but sociologists have argued that when a white therapist states they “don’t see colour”, it denies the client’s race and exposes a lack of awareness regarding the therapist’s own power and privilege – aspects which collude, dangerously, to deny the lived experience of the black client.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how race and systemic racism play both historically and in today's world can, and is, affecting individuals psychologically.
  • Demonstrate how psychotherapy for black people needs to be a safe space.
  • Discuss how Black client’s experience can be misinterpreted by a white therapist and can lead to dangerous misdiagnoses. Explain how “colour-blind racial ideology”, denies the client’s race and exposes a lack of awareness regarding the therapist’s own power and privilege.
