In 2020, more than half (61.8%) of the hate crimes (11,129) in the United States were motivated by race, ethnicity, and ancestry bias. Video-enabled electronic devices (e.g., cell phones, tablets, etc.) have made it possible for the incidents of hate crimes to be viewed in real-time or available online within a matter of seconds. Consequently, adults, adolescents, and children often find themselves inundated with information and images that evoke painful emotions and/or raise questions that often go unanswered. With the increase in hate crimes and race-based encounters experienced by people of color, licensed mental health professionals, lay counselors, and clergy willing to create a safe space for feelings to be shared and validated are needed. This Webinar will create a safe space for attendees to learn more about the impact race-based trauma has on African-American communities, the importance of creating a safe space for talking about this type of trauma, and the steps to establish a safe place for those affected by race-based trauma. 


Learning Objectives 

Participants will: 

  1. Outline the historical and current impact racism, discrimination, and race-based trauma have on the African-American community 
  2. Define race-based trauma and provide examples of race-based encounters 
  3. Identify the importance of creating a safe space for those impacted by race-based trauma 
  4. Articulate the steps to create a safe space for Christian clients impacted by race-based trauma for licensed mental health professionals and other caregivers
