Talking about Race and Racism with Children

July 18, 2023 11:00am - 12:30pm
$29 for NCFR student members / $49 for NCFR members & CFLEs / $89 for nonmembers & non-CFLEs

Presenters: Lorna Durrant, Ph.D., CFLE; Margaret Kerr, Ph.D.; and Chang Su-Russell, Ph.D., CFLE

Children learn about race from what they hear and observe from family members, friends, and others in their communities. Children might not learn about the harmful effects of racism, though, increasing the likelihood of misinformed and stereotypical views.

To promote parents talking with their children about race and racism, this webinar will share information about children’s ability to understand race, including developmental milestones, and the benefits of having a discussion on race and racism with children. Recent research findings on how parents have discussed race and racism, factors that promote and hinder these conversations, and intervention initiatives to support parents will also be shared.

An opportunity will then be provided to discuss implications of the research and how the findings can promote practices that help children understand, respect, and appreciate differences between people.

Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
