PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY WEBINAR SERIES: Race, Racism, Power, and Privilege: Informing the Practice of Psychopharmacology

August 3, 2020 @ 12:00 pm CDT

We are experiencing a tumultuous and epic time in our nation’s history due to recent events stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, and most recently, civil unrest stemming from the horrific and senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Elijah McClain, among others.

In this presentation, Dr. Leila Ellis-Nelson will join Dr. Rodriguez-Menendez for a candid discussion about race and racism in America. The presenters will provide their perspectives on race and racism in the US in view of available scientific research. Therefore, the social contextual view of race will be compared to the science of race through genetic testing. Key findings will be shared with the audience to inform the practice of psychopharmacology. An extended Question and Answer period will be provided to allow participants to reflect on racial and social injustice in a non-judgmental atmosphere to create a “safe space” for all.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education programming for psychologists. This program, when attended in its entirety, is available for one (1.0) continuing education credit.

This program will take place on GoToWebinar
