Suicide Prevention: Black Youth Lives Matter Too!

NASW New York State

Mark Wills 0 1224
1 p.m.-4 p.m.

In the last several decades, suicide attempts among black adolescents has increased by 73% while attempts among white youth have decreased. Why aren't we sounding the alarm and doing more to raise awareness of this crisis?

During this workshop we will discuss the additional challenges faced by black youth, explore strategies to break down barriers, increase cultural competency amongst providers and the role of racial socialization as a protective strategy in reducing suicide attempts amongst black youth.

See My Color: Why Racial Colorblindness is Unethical

NASW NY State Chapter

Cat McDonald 0 1190

1 - 4 pm ET

As a counselor, not only is it unrealistic to be racially colorblind, it is dangerous and does more harm than good. If you don't see my color, you can't see me. And if you can't see me, how can you empathize with my racial experiences, accept my whole being and validate my perspectives? During this training, participants will be introduced to racial colorblindness as a type of microaggression, and how to address this within practice settings and personal life.
