Dr. Ryan DeLapp is offering a professional development training that teaches clinicians how to use the principals of the REACH program (Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Healing) to help BIPOC adolescents and young adults deal with race-related stress. This new therapeutic framework offers a robust yet flexible structure for doing culturally responsive work with young people of color and helping them build skills to successfully navigate race-related issues and associated stress.
Many young people of color contend with bias, incidents of racism, and feelings of otherness, which can contribute to race-based stress. Guidance on how to clinically assess and treat race-based stress in young clients is very limited, so many clinicians often struggle to identify when and how much to focus on issues of race — and how to approach them in a way that’s culturally sensitive, developmentally appropriate, and constructive.
Led by Dr. DeLapp, this 5-session training is designed to give you — and the BIPOC adolescents and young adults you work with — a toolkit for more confidently addressing experiences related to racial identity and associated stress.
Through highly practical instruction, case examples, reflection, and more, you’ll learn how to use the REACH UP framework to assess race-based stress and adapt effective treatment plans to address its impacts and promote empowerment, self-acceptance, and healing.
