Description

The 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has highlighted social disparities in the United States. This continuing education article examines how preexisting racial and ethnic disparities, exacerbated by COVID-19, have negatively affected communities of color, who tend to be overrepresented in lower socioeconomic groups, have limited access to health care and education, be undocumented, and work in jobs considered “essential.” Counselors must be prepared to support communities of color, as well as other marginalized clients with intersecting identities and multiple concerns who may be exacerbated by COVID-19-related stress.

Learning Objectives:
  • Examine the impact of COVID-19 on communities of color,
  • Explore how professional counselors need to be attentive to compounding effect(s)of COVID-19 among BIPOC communities,
  • Learn how to better understand clients’ worldviews, values, and beliefs as these relate to their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
