Acting in allyship for the marginalized child and family: the impact of discrimination on ethnic-racial development, wellness and healthcare disparities


Do the children and families you serve see you as an ally?

Join the speaker as she dissects how history has impacted present-day health and healthcare disparities that exist for marginalized children.

Learn the developmental process of children’s ethnic-racial identity and how discrimination and racial trauma can negatively impact their perceptions of self and those that work with them.

Gain an understanding of the role of a provider of marginalized children and action steps to creating a culture that they and their caregivers feel safe in.

Attendees will walk away from this workshop with action steps toward becoming an effective ally and advocate for the children and families you serve within your treatment setting and in your surrounding community.
