- Presented by:
Telsie Davis, Ph.D.
- Describe how racism influences mental health treatment disparities experienced by African Americans
- Describe cultural characteristics common among African Americans engaging in mental health treatment
- Discuss strategies to minimize the negative impact of the clinician’s privilege, power, and unconscious bias on clinical practice with African Americans
- Identify strategies to increase working alliance development with African Americans
- List two validated assessment measures of race-based trauma
- Summarize a peer-reviewed model to treat race-based trauma and foster resilience
Clinicians want treatment to work for all clients, but the research is clear that African Americans often benefit less from treatment than White Americans. The status quo in mental health often falls short of ethical and effective care for this population. Dr. Davis will utilize didactics, self-assessments, clinical vignettes, case examples, and experiential exercises to assist clinicians in applying an antiracist lens to treat African Americans. This workshop will focus on how to eliminate mental health treatment disparities, develop a stronger working alliance, and treat race-based trauma.
