As mental health, wellness, and system leaders, we must be intentional in not making prejudgments about individuals who are different from us, and those whose actions do not align with our values and norms. Prejudgments are dangerous, especially for racially/ethnically diverse and marginalized individuals and communities. As providers, prejudgments hinder our learning, prevent us from participating in authentic conversations, and can impact the types and quality of services provided. The goal of this webinar is to learn about the impacts of generational trauma, resilience, and resistance through the lens of Mr. Amen, and to develop strategies for cultivating hope in each of our interactions with young people and their families.
- Participants will increase their understanding of the intersections and impacts of multigenerational trauma and mental health.
- Participants will increase their awareness of institutional and systemic traumas, and how they can be reduced.
- Participants will learn the criticalness of diverse and positive mentors for young people, especially young Black males.
