Discrimination with Intention- Cultural & Structural Racism
Cultural & Structural Racism has been used for centuries to devalue, discriminate and disenfranchise BIPOC since the slave laws of the 1600’s. Although Civil Rights Legislation has outlawed discrimination, the residue of Cultural & Structural Racism persists in our Justice, Educational, and Behavioral Health systems today. Every day, BIPOC experiences “racism that contributes to race based traumas that can lead to depression, low self-esteem, avoidance behaviors, etc.” (Association for Behavioral & Cognitive Therapies). Providers could inadvertently contribute to cultural & structural racism if we are not aware of the attitudes, opinions, and beliefs that marginalize BIPOC. This workshop deals with understanding the behaviors contributing to disparities and the marginalization of BIPOC, such as stigma, stereotyping, and macroaggressions. We will also discuss practical strategies to help providers create a safe space holding an environment of respect, belonging and inclusion for all the people we serve regardless of race.
1) Define Cultural & Structural Racism in the Behavioral Health space.
2) Understand how Cultural & Structural Racism contribute to race based traumas and their negative effects on BIPOC
3) Discuss strategies to effectively support BIPOC populations in a manner that is respectful and inclusive with Cultural Humility.
Time: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM Eastern
