Presented By: Dr. Leela Morrow, Alumna of TCSPP
Having conversations about race it critically important, but it can also be very challenging. Dr. Morrow will share tools and strategies she uses when discussing race with children, adolescents, and families, as well as sharing her personal experience with race. She will answer questions such as: How can White parents help their children start the journey toward anti-racism? How can parents of color help their children process a racially stressful encounter? Dr. Morrow will help participants create brave spaces for conversation, exploration, and growth. Participants will be invited to join breakout rooms for group discussion.
