Workshop Description:

Even after the height of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, racism continues to be a significant source of psychological harm and trauma for many clients in our clinical care. Inexcusably, their suffering often goes undertreated or untreated because most clinicians have not received training on how to assess and treat racial trauma. Dr. Telsie Davis returns to deliver an advanced training that uses case examples, didactics, and experiential exercises to describe:

Dr. Davis will review strengths and limitations of these interventions for the assessment and treatment of racial trauma with Black clients based on her experience. Though much of the content may be applicable to other Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, Dr. Davis recommends engaging in training specific to these communities as best practice.

This is an advanced training. It is strongly advised that participants be knowledgeable about CPT and the following before participating:
