AN INTRODUCTION TO RACIAL TRAUMA
Race Reflections has now launched ACADEMY, its dedicated e-learning and development portal.
Due to significant need and repeated requests, Race Reflections’ first online course is on Racial Trauma. The first of its kind in the U.K. The course is now available for early bird pre-booking.
This is a 4-5 PARTS thorough, emotionally challenging and reflexive course which will equip learners with the theoretical and, empirical underpinning of racial trauma together with strategies and clinical tools to support those struggling with racism related distress.
Each PART is expected to take 4-7 hours to complete on average. Learners will have 3 months to complete the course.
The course is suitable for all helping professionals, teachers, medical staff, and managers and others with an interest in psychology, mental health AND social justice.
We anticipate the course will be available in early July 2020.
The course will comprises short PowerPoint presentations, reading material, guided study, relevant videos and references. Learners may also join an online forum to connect with other learners taking the course.
