Mar 30, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 29, 2019 12:00pm


Description

What is happening in our communities, and how can we as counselors adapt crisis interventions, implement preventative measures, and advocate to reduce the violent repercussions of racial tensions? This roundtable will review the historical evolution of community uprisings and explore common precursors to racially charged unrest. In addition, attendees will learn innovative counseling interventions and advocacy tools to support our communities through difficult transitions and to nurture sustained change.

  • Session attendees will develop a better understanding of the precursors to racially charged events such as institutionalized racism, the role of social media, racial profiling, and societal messages that implicitly support,allow, or enable discrimination, prejudice, bigotry, and racism.
  • Presenters will provide innovative clinical tools and interventions that can be implemented with clinical populations in response to specific crisis and/or uprising situations.
  • Attendees will receive guidelines for community and national advocacy plans to facilitate sustained environmental changes and work toward the prevention of future uprisings.
