This training is for new and experienced social workers who want to explore the impact of racial injustices on children and adolescents. We know that many of the children are exposed to various sources of trauma related to race. We also know that black and brown children are disproportionately suspended and referred for special education services. As social workers working with this population these realities can not be overlooked.

  • Define historical trauma, racial trauma and microaggressions.
  • Identify the impact of historical and racial trauma on children and adolescents.
