Caring for the Wounds of Racial Trauma (for Ourselves and Our Clients)
Events that have transpired over the last year have brought to light the critical need for mental health professionals to cultivate cultural humility and explore and address their patient’s racial trauma. Racial trauma is a form of race-based stress that "refers to People of Color and Indigenous individuals’ (POCI) reactions to dangerous events and real or perceived experiences of racial discrimination" (Comas_Díaz, Hall, & Neville, 2019). Examples of racial trauma may include "threats of harm and injury, humiliating and shaming events, and witnessing racial discrimination toward other POCI" (Comas-Díaz, Hall, & Neville, 2019). This webinar will provide an overview of racial trauma; provide information on approaches to exploring it in the clinical setting; and offer advice on next steps for continued learning about historically marginalized racial groups.

Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.    Identify three approaches to exploring racial trauma with clients.
2.    Describe how a cognitive-behavioral conceptualization can be used to discuss racial trauma.
3.    List three, meaningful ways they will work towards increasing exposure to historically marginalized racial groups.
4.    Plan for acknowledging the racial trauma of clients in your clinical practice.
