Research has indicated that youth experience racism, prejudice, and bias as early as preschool. For many, their interpersonal experiences of racism, prejudice and bias can be quite disorienting, and can influence functioning, particularly for youth who have experienced other traumas. In this training, attendees will have the opportunity to reflect on their experiences and feelings related to current events (e.g., the death of George Floyd and others by law enforcement) and learn strategies for navigating discussions specific to race, experiences of discrimination, and racial trauma with youth. Through open dialogue and interactive facilitation, participants will have an opportunity for introspection and exploratory dialogue within a safe environment.
