Title: Leveraging Diverse Family Systems to Promote Dignity and Prepare for Discrimination: Racial Socialization for Black Youth


Presenter Level: Beginner

Virginia Commonwealth University


Thursday, July 15, 2021

Keniston (1978) asserted that Black youth are “the most endangered children in our society.” Indeed, Black children and teens are exposed to myriad risks, particularly those that emanate from the legacy of racism in this country. Yet, despite historical deficit-oriented narratives concerning them, Black youth—and their families—have continued to demonstrate positive psychosocial outcomes. Moreover, assisting diverse family structures in cogently providing racial socialization may optimize the historical psychosocial protection of this racially-relevant factor. In this presentation, conceptual and empirical work on mechanisms undergirding the salutary benefit of familial racial socialization will be discussed. Specifically, mixed-methods (i.e., survey, observation, interview) research will be presented that addresses how diverse families of Black youth navigate teaching their children about race.  This presentation will conclude with a discussion of ongoing and future research, including how both experimental and prospective studies can serve to promote the resiliency of Black youth.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this presentation, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the current state-of-the evidence concerning racism-related risk factors for Black youth
  • Demonstrate and apply a racial mindfulness technique as a means of considering the stress associated with racial socialization
  • Identify the research and clinical utility of racial socialization as a protective factor for Black youth
  • Understand how diverse family of Black youth may navigate and negotiate decisions around raising Black youth in ways that promote dignity and reduce the impact of discrimination.

Part 2: Multi-Series Live Webinar Event

Title: Culturally Affirming Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Heal Interpersonal and Racial Trauma: The Importance of Racial Socialization for Black Youth


Audience Level: Intermediate


Presenter and Affiliation:

Isha W. Metzger, Ph.D.


Thursday, July 29, 2021

11:00 am- 12:30 pm Eastern/ 10 am – 11:30 am Central/ 9:00 am – 10:30 am Mountain/ 8:00 am – 9:30 am Pacific


Moderator: Brittany Hall- Clark, Ph.D.


The negative consequences of interpersonal trauma (e.g., physical abuse) take a disproportionate toll on Black youth due to the compounding stress of experiencing unique race related stressors both directly (e.g., microaggressions) and vicariously (e.g., witnessing police brutality in the media). Community based mental health services exist to provide child and family treatment for trauma to help prevent and treat negative sequelae. However, these services are often underutilized as they do not systematically consider racial stress and trauma in their intakes, assessment, or treatments. To increase their utility in responding to and treating trauma, cognitive-behavioral treatments and services should address cultural factors (e.g., system mistrust) that are likely to influence Black families' willingness to engage in treatment. In addition, Black youth rely on particular assets and strengths in their families and communities to reduce negative mental and behavioral health outcomes from interpersonal and race-related stressors. Racial socialization is the protective process of transmitting cultural behaviors, attitudes, and values to prepare youth to cope with racial stressors, and is associated with positive outcomes including increased resilience, coping abilities, and decreased problem behaviors and anxiety in Black youth. This webinar will provide an overview of the impact of interpersonal and racial stress and trauma on mental health and behavioral outcomes for Black youth. This webinar will also present findings from research on organizational barriers and facilitators to service utilization and engagement for ethnic minority caregivers referred for treatment at a nationally accredited community mental health center for children. Last, a focus of this webinar will be on providing participants an overview of groundbreaking strategies and resources for utilizing racial socialization to deliver cognitive-behavioral therapy in a culturally affirming and validating manner for Black youth and families who are healing from interpersonal and racial trauma.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify ways that interpersonal and racial stress and trauma impact Black youth development;
  2. Understand research on barriers and facilitators to mental health service utilization for ethnic minority youth and families;
  3. Define racial socialization including evidence-based themes that the messages convey, benefits of racial socialization for Black youth, and common modes for transmitting racial socialization messages and practices; and
  4. Utilize 2-3 strategies for integrating racial socialization as a culturally specific cognitive-behavioral treatment strategy for Black clients.

Black children and adolescents live in a society wherein anti-Black racism is a common experience. Schools systems are often platforms for these social injustices, where Black children experience disproportionately punitive discipline, microaggressions, explicit racism, and police brutality while simultaneously attempting to learn. Racial stress and trauma (RST) is a byproduct of racism when racism disrupts psychological, emotional and physical well-being. This presentation will explore Black youth’s experiences with racism and racial stress and trauma in schools and intervention research conducted on school-based trauma interventions. Additionally, this presentation provides future directions for research and reveals the need for further research on school-based assessment and interventions for Black youth’s racial stress and trauma. Strategies for building resilience among this population and practice recommendations based on empirical evidence will also be discussed.  


Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe school-based racial stress and trauma experiences among Black youth  
  2. Discuss school-based trauma interventions
  3.  Understand practice recommendations for youth experiencing school-based racial stress and trauma

Part 4: Multi-Series Live Webinar Event

Title: “Antiracism in the Third Wave: Culturally Humble Applications in Principle-Driven Treatment”

Audience Level: Beginner/Intermediate


Presenter and Affiliation:

Kimberly Applewhite, PsyD


Thursday, August 26, 2021

11:00 am- 12:30 pm Eastern/ 10 am – 11:30 am Central/ 9:00 am – 10:30 am Mountain/ 8:00 am – 9:30 am Pacific


Moderator: Lily Brown, Ph.D.


The racially stressful events of the past decade, punctuated by the current “double pandemic” of COVID-19 and racially-implicated deaths of Black individuals, have heightened the call for anti-racism in various spheres of influence, including in clinical work. Principle-driven strategies for treatment, often found in “Third Wave” adaptations to cognitive and behavioral treatment, have the potential to imbue principles of anti-racism more thoroughly into treatment while maintaining the integrity of evidence-based treatment protocols. This presentation will discuss the ethical responsibility of practitioners to engage in anti-racist work, review literature of existing third-wave interventions (i.e. DBT, ACT) that use principle-driven anti-racist strategies to present culturally humble care, and focus participants on their own committed action to anti-racism in their own practice. 


Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Connect existing practitioner ethical commitments to anti-racist practice.
  2. Deepen understanding of “what is being left out” of research and practice related to racially diverse communities.
  3. Identify personal and role-level values consistency between evidence based practice and anti-racism in treatment and research.
  4. Learn ways to increase the quality of principle-driven approaches to enhance existing protocols in a culturally humble manner
  5. Identify values-consistent committed action to anti-racist practice.
