Although awareness and understanding of trauma-informed care has been increasing for clinicians and clients alike, most clinicians are not fully trained to recognize racial trauma and the impact of racial trauma in adolescents. As a result, teens who are experiencing segregation, racism, discrimination, and/or marginalization often feel they have no one to turn to for help and understanding.
In this 2-hour continuing education webinar for therapists, Támara T. Hill, M.S., NCC, CCTP, LPC will provide an overview of racial trauma, its impact on adolescents, and context for understanding how racism can lead to a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She will also cover Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques clinicians can use to address racial trauma in therapy and other strategies to help teens navigate their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and rebuild a sense of safety and confidence.
Ms. Hill is a multi-ethnic person and clinician who understands the importantance of inquiring about and treating any racial trauma that an adolescent client may have experienced firsthand or secondarily. If clinicians do not address the cultural and ethnic needs of clients, they may be missing a large part of the their clients' life stories including who they are and who they can become.
