Talking with Children about Race and Identity: Considerations for  Providers and Caregivers

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020, 9AM-12:15PM (one 15 minute break)

Three (3) Continuing Education Credits

Presented by Dr. Katherine A. Lingras

Please see the Program Brochure for full details.

Target Audience:

The DPA plans and promotes programs serving the continuing educational needs of psychologists and professionals across a variety of disciplines. Through the provision of high quality programming, the DPA hopes to support psychologists and other mental health professionals in their commitment to provide ethical, culturally sensitive and competent services to our community 

Workshop Description:

Children see race. They recognize phenotypical differences among people. However, research shows that not all parents, caregivers, and adults provide guidance (or even space) around how to navigate conversations about race, identity, and racism.  And some parents avoid or silence the topic altogether. There are significant repercussions when we do not provide space for these formative conversations, as silence is where stereotypes, biases, and racism are reinforced.  


This workshop will focus on navigating discussions around race and racism with children at various developmental levels, why we don’t, why we should, and how to start (or continue). Participants will learn rationale behind the importance of having these conversations and concrete skills for initiating and facilitating these discussions and how to apply these principles to also discussing other aspects of identity.
