More Than Diversity & Inclusion- Real Talk About Racism

$29.00

1.5 CE Hours.

There recently has been increased pressure in society and on organizations regarding diversity, racism, and inclusion.  Racism occurs when there is a presumed biological or cultural superiority of one or more racial groups over another, and that presumption is used to justify or prescribe inferior treatment or social position of other racial groups. Today, racism continues to exist and results in considerable inequalities in socioeconomic, health, and other outcomes. Racism, prejudicial treatment, and unfair practices impact the mental health of individuals and the providers who interact with them. Understanding how to better prepare, educate, and equip current and future mental health providers should be a high priority. This training will explore the historical significance of racial trauma and the devastating impact on mental health, as well as how to approach issues of diversity, inclusion, and antiracism in education and recruitment.
