Feedback form is now closed.
Recent racial conflicts, confrontations, and protests have affected how America considers its legacy of violence and equality. Lost in these socially mediated events, is what happens emotionally to youth and families, to authority figures who also have children and families, and to social activists trying to hold America accountable to its highest ideals. This workshop will teach participants how to navigate the stress of having face-to-face racial conversations and experiences in order to move beyond racial fight, flight or fright reactions. Participants will be taught to recognize and resolve their racial stress reactions in order to make better decisions regarding racial interactions with others.
