"Racial Trauma: Psychological Implication of the Shootings on African Americans"

August 26, 2016

Presented by Presented by Jane Snowden, LCSW

Eighty-five percent of African Americans reported being stopped at least once in their lifetime and 78% had no history of criminal activity per a study published in the American Journal of Public Health.  The recent shootings of African American men have impact people of color both at work and in the mental health community.  Unfortunately, the violence witnessed towards people of color has increased fear, anxiety and trauma symptoms in many African American.  Some mental health professionals have coined the term “Racial Trauma”.  Join us as we explore the meaning of Racial Trauma, review the symptoms and discuss the methods to address these concerns in the workplace and in counseling.
