Presenter Dr. Ebonyse Mead

Since the inception of the United States, structural racism and White supremacy has been deeply entrenched in our country. We have all been victimized and socialized in a racist society and the need to heal is imminent.

Since we have all been socialized in a racist society and have internalized racial attitudes that impact our behaviors and interactions, this webinar will provide skills on how to promote open discussions about racial tensions through racial healing. Specifically, Presenter Ebonyse Mead, Ed.D., CFLE, will discuss internalized racial superiority and racial oppression, along with how past crimes against humanity currently influence our behaviors and attitudes. Strategies will be provided on how to heal from racial trauma and how to use that information when working with families.

Overall, attendees will leave this webinar with the ability to:

  • Define key terms including cultural mistrust, historical trauma, multigenerational trauma and trauma healing
  • Discuss the four phases of racial healing
  • Identify and apply strategies to heal from racial trauma

This webinar is intended for anyone studying and working in the family field from students to seasoned professionals. By practicing racial healing, we are forced to acknowledge our country's history of racism, White supremacy, and the legacies of racial discrimination and injustices that too often harm children, families, and communities. It is a process that facilitates trust and builds an authentic relationships between real and perceived differences. Thus, it is incumbent upon the Family Science discipline to adequately address racial inequities, promote racial healing, and build a socially just future.

Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
