Racial discrimination has been found to significantly predict racial trauma and race-based traumatic stress (e.g., Carter et al., 2013). Despite both the prevalence of racial discrimination (e.g., between 50 and 75% of Black, Hispanic, and Asians reporting experiences of racial discrimination; Lee et al., 2019) and its consistent association with racial trauma and race-based traumatic stress, most clinicians lack the necessary training to assess and treat racial trauma in therapeutic settings (Hemmings & Evans, 2018).
As such, this program uses recent and relevant research to facilitate mental health clinicians’ understanding of racial trauma presentations across the lifespan.
The presentation will provide an overview of the history of trauma treatment in clinical settings and articulate the challenges of treating racial trauma as a form of psychological distress distinct from both racial discrimination and the traditional trauma framework.
Finally, strategies for effective assessment and treatment of racial trauma and race-based traumatic stress are discussed.
