This one-hour, four part series will address how systemic racism has contributed significantly to disparities in health and mental health for BIPOC communities. These historical inequities in mental health can also be seen in educational institutions.  Current and future education as well as treatment strategies committed to social justice, equity, diversity and inclusion will be provided.

The goals of this series are to:

a) more fully understand ways systemic racism has a direct impact on disparities in health and mental health for cultural and ethnic communities as well as BIPOC individually,

b) to recognize strategies clinically as well as educationally leading to greater equity, diversity and inclusion in clinical practice for mental wellness.

Session 1: Systemic Racism with Historical Inequities: Psychological Practice and Mental Health Treatment

Wednesday, January 12, 2022

12pm-1pm PST/2pm-3pm CT/3pm-4pm ET

Systemic racism continues to have negative impacts on ethnic and racial communities including BIPOC.  Physical as well as mental health experts point to adverse conditions contributing to negative life outcomes. In order to address mental wellness providers must understand the pandemic of racism as it contributes to historical inequities.  Such inequities are seen in justice systems, health, education, economic and social systems and more. The implications and ramifications for psychological practice and mental health care will be examined.
