Words Matter Discussion Series
Join us for the Words Matter series where we engage in open and authentic discussions about the impact of common terminology used in child-serving systems with those that are directly affected.

Youth Racial Trauma Assessment and Therapy Training
Due to systemic racism, youth of color are vulnerable to the deleterious physical and psychological impact of race-based traumatic stress. However, mental health clinicians and organizations are underprepared to provide the appropriate racial trauma assessments and interventions needed to support youth of color meaningfully and competently. In partnership with the KY Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (BHDID), the Collective Care Center (CCC) has developed a comprehensive racial trauma therapy manual for the treatment of race-based traumatic stress in youth of color ages 6-12.
