    Title: A Collective Experience: Addressing Racial Trauma and Healing in Black Mental Health

    Panelists:


    Panel Summary:  

    Racial trauma is continuous and therefore the conversation must continue. Ongoing conversations help therapists to increase their ability in having challenging discussions. This will be a panel discussion on racial trauma and healing in the Black community. The panel will consist of professionals with various backgrounds who will share their perspectives on understanding the impact of racial trauma and collective healing, discuss therapeutic interventions for racial healing, coping with systemic oppression and utilizing client's strengths in assisting their healing process. We aspire for attendees to gather an understanding of diversity behind the Black experience.

    Learning objectives:

    1. Participants will develop an understanding of the impact of racial trauma and collective healing.

    2. Participants will be presented with a framework of healing that considers therapeutic techniques and interventions.

    3. Participants will learn ways to help individuals cope with systemic oppression.

    4. Participants will learn how to support the awareness of client strengths to assist them in their healing process.
