The Inter-Mental Health and Psychological Associations Coalition (IMPAC), NJABPsi, LMHANJ, NJPA join together as equal partners to contribute their unique educational acumen, expertise, experience, and perspectives to obtain synergy as a resource to promote equality in mental health care and to zealously advocate for the mental health needs for the diverse population of the state of New Jersey. This will be accomplished by our respective organizations working together to develop initiatives to educate the public, as well as healthcare providers through training, professional presentations and mobilizing resources as needed to provide counseling and psychological services under emergent circumstances.

Program Narrative:
Racism in the United States remains a persistent and urgent problem. Recent events have underscored the unfortunate reality that misunderstanding and confusion about race and racism continue to divide our country and thwart its forward progress. This workshop will focus on the impact of racism on the health and welfare of Black children. Authors and educators, Drs. Valerie Harrison and Kathryn Peach D’Angelo, will share and discuss critical research about the complex factors that impact a Black child’s achievement and well-being. The participants will learn about the role of positive racial identity as a critical tool in improving academic and social outcomes for Black children; threats to the development of positive racial identity; and strategies that support particular approaches to parenting and nurturing Black children in ways that equip them to navigate racism. Participants also will learn how to go beyond a general awareness of racism to the next steps of understanding how racism still operates in the lives of Black people, and then to developing and implementing effective approaches to racial equity. 

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the role of positive racial identity as a critical tool in the health and well-being of Black children.
2. Identifying threats and safeguards to positive racial identity.
3. Discuss concepts (e.g. racism, anti-racism) that help beyond that of a general awareness of racism to the next steps of understanding how racism still operates in the lives of Black people.
4. Identify and implement effective approaches to racial equity.
