This training event has passed.
This workshop is part of the CARE TA Center’s Anti-Racism in California’s Crisis Continuum of CARE: Action Learning Workshops series. Each 3-hour workshop will offer a 60-minute pre-recorded presentation combined with facilitated discussion and action planning. Instructors will guide participants through a process to create individualized plans for implementation. Moving from learning to action, participants will gain competencies and walk away with skills, templates, tools, and resources to apply to their daily work in the crisis continuum of care.
Clinicians working with individuals who are currently and formerly incarcerated tend to primarily be white, and have had little, if any, involvement with the criminal legal system. However, people involved with the criminal legal system continue to be comprised primarily of BIPOC. To be effective, clinicians must be able to identify and address the ways that systemic racism and historical trauma are (re)enacted within the field of psychology, so as to reduce the level of harm that continues to be perpetuated via mental health service provision to this vulnerable population.
This workshop will include live viewing of a presentation (originally part of the CARE TA Center virtual conference in June 2021) and facilitated discussion focused on applying insights from the presentation to your daily work.
Action planning will focus on understanding systemic racism and its historical roots within the field of psychology, the evolution of today’s criminal legal system and how it continues to perpetuate the tenets of white supremacy, and the intersectionality of trauma, systemic racism, and the criminal legal system.
