Racial, Ethnic, And Cultural Healing: Cognitive Behavioral Assessment and Treatment Approaches for Racism-related Stress


New York, NY, Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., Webinar via Zoom

Intended For

Mental health providers of all disciplines and allied professionals who work with children, adolescents, and adults.


Friday, December 17, 2021. 9 am - Noon

This intermediate-level training webinar will provide space for attendees to explore their own comfort levels with assessing and treating the impacts of racism-related stress. Also, this training will seek to combine various teaching methods (e.g., didactic, discussion, and case discussion) to sensitively and comprehensively achieve the identified learning objectives.

This course will first discuss approaches for clinicians to ready themselves for engaging in conversations about racial stress with patients. Additionally, attendees will be introduced to both formal and informal approaches to evaluating the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral impact of discrimination. Lastly, the course will provide a framework for incorporating experiences of discrimination into one’s case conceptualization and provide options for creating space for patients to discuss and heal from their perceptions of discrimination with clinicians.

Ultimately, this training directly focuses on how clinicians can be more respectful of the mental health impact of racism-related stress and thus feel better equipped to effectively and sensitively assess and adapt evidence-based interventions to meet BIPOC patient needs who endorse racism-related stress.
