Addressing Racial Trauma in the Clinical Setting


Understanding how racial trauma affects the mental, emotional, and physical health of your Black clients is only the beginning of helping them work through their trauma. In addition to knowing the impacts, organizations and clinicians should know best practices for addressing racism and racial trauma from the minute they enter your practice to when they go into the therapy room (whether in-person or through telehealth).

Join us Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 2 PM ET to hear Jamila Holcomb, Ph.D., LMFT, continue the conversation on racial trauma and how clinicians and organizations can help Black clients in the clinical setting.

During the webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to apply trauma-informed care best practices when addressing racism and racial trauma in the therapy room
  • Self-care strategies clinicians can implement to protect their own well-being
  • What supervisors can do within the supervisor/supervisee relationship to help clinicians leverage trauma-informed care
  • Ways organizations can create a safe space through their marketing materials, lobby presentation, and staff training
     

Please note: This webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
