Education Description

When utilizing cultural competence within our practice, we must understand the experiences and historical narratives of the communities we serve. Utilizing a trauma-informed lens and interactive presentation style, the presentation explores the history of marginalization and oppression of Black people, internal narratives that were developed, and the development of transgenerational trauma. In addition, the training assists clinicians in exploring and unpacking biases that may interfere with their ability to adequately serve Black clients and concludes with strategies to improve inclusion within their mental health practice. Attendees will develop a greater awareness of the impact of historical racial trauma on Black people and develop strategies to begin unpacking personal and workplace biases toward their racially marginalized clientele.
