Course Description

This course is based on the following three key components: (1) the 66-minute Ted Talks video “The Path to Ending Systemic Racism in the US,” which is designed to provide participants with a clear understanding of the nature of systemic racism in the US, and pathways to overcoming and healing from its tragic consequences; (2) the Psychology Today article “Uncovering the Trauma of Racism: New Tools for Clinicians”; and (3) the Society for the Advancement of Psychotherapy article “Actionable Steps for Therapists (and All Human Beings) in Response to the Racial Pandemic.” The two documents examine the clinical implications of systemic racism, including assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of those who have been traumatized by systemic racism.

To complete the course, participants access online content that includes the 66-minute Ted Talks video and the two web-based articles before passing the online posttest with a score of 80% or better to print a certificate of completion.
