Racial Injustice and Trauma: How Therapists Can Respond


Please join us for free access to two one-hour panel discussions around the issue of racial injustice and trauma. These important conversations, featuring the perspectives and guidance of several clinicians and thought leaders, will highlight how we can bring issues of race into therapy, and how we can address racial disparities in our field and professional communities.


Yes, I’d like to view the panel videos.
