The Ethical and Clinical Implication of Race and Police Interaction - A Cultural Competence Workshop
Times New Roman
This presentation will NOT be recorded for playback review.
The purpose of the workshop is to help clinicians recognize the social problem of racism that has emerged systemically in our police system. Racism has caused distress in the lives of people of color psychologically and emotionally. Systemic and structural racism are societal problems impacting and affecting the lives of people of color. Racism is tied to structural and individual bias that allows racism to play as a gatekeeping function in how other systems, like the police system, interact with people of color.
This workshop aims to increase awareness on the part of professionals regarding the influences that help sustain police brutality, encourage a trauma-informed lens, and provide skills in working with parents when using police intervention. We will also discuss steps that parents can take when feeling that their rights or the rights of their teens have been violated.
