A thorough understanding of structural racism can help all professionals provide effective services for youth and their families. In this session, instructors will explain structural racism, provide examples of and data on structural racism, and discuss implications for youth. The material can be emotionally challenging and they will provide what they hope will be a helpful structure for understanding and a learning environment for every participant to grow.

 Participants will:

-Increase their knowledge of why understanding race and structural racism is crucial to achieving cultural competence
-Understand how history, laws, policies, practices & belief systems have interacted to produce racial disparities (also known as “structural racism”)
-Identify connections between historical racial injustices & present-day realities for youth and their families
