About the Program:
Advancing beyond individual-level approaches to coping with racial trauma, the psychological framework of radical healing calls for a new multisystemic framework for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Radical healing involves resisting oppression while envisioning possibilities and consists of five key components. The model of radical healing is applicable to clinical practice, research, training, and social justice advocacy.
This program qualifies for 3.0 continuing education credits. Attendees must attend entire session to gain credit.
The speaker has no conflicts of interest to report

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe components of the psychological framework of radical healing from racial trauma.
  2. Identify research supporting the model.
  3. Apply the psychological framework of radical healing to clinical case examples.
