Over the past few years there has been growing tensions and multifaceted challenges that our country has endured. Arguably, the common factor that has been most divisive is associated with racial categorizations and consequent divisions of people along the same lines. Recent happenings related to civil unrest have a direct correlation to the forementioned challenges.
Dissention of this nature has also been one of the most significant historical barriers to harmony and peace. It has become increasingly apparent that there currently is a lack of specific training and therapeutic offerings directly related to managing and/or treating race related issues. As a point of responsibility, the lack of resources pertaining to this national crisis must change.
The goal of this training is to provide information related to the development and manifestations of prejudice, discrimination, and racism. In theory this will empower participants to develop through introspection and continuous self-analysis. Also, providers will be empowered to better serve Black clients. This training will involve both psycho-education and processing. Challenges inherent to both the provider and client will be addressed.
