Webinar: Addressing the impact of institutional racism in behavioral and recovery care: A trauma informed intersectional healing framework for Latinxs
This presentation is the second of a 4-Part series titled: "Institutional Racism and How it Impacts the Latinx Experience as it Relates to Behavioral Health."
The Latinx community in the U.S. is living through one of its most difficult periods in modern U.S. history. Currently, Latinxs are being negatively impacted by systemic oppression which can lead to psychological distress including ethno-racial trauma. This form of trauma stems from experiencing or witnessing discrimination, threats of harm, violence, and intimidation directed at Latinxs. However, the impact of institutional racism, and other forms of oppression, is often not emphasized in most of the existing psychotherapeutic, recovery, and trauma literature. To this end, the goal of this workshop is to illustrate the ways in which behavioral health clinicians can integrate an intersectional and trauma informed healing framework into their clinical practice to address the impact of ethno-racial trauma on Latinxs.
