"Black Minds Matter"

Presented by: Dr. Luke Wood, Ph.D. - 2 CE's

Workshop Description:
The high-profile slayings of Black Americans: George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, and more, have lead to numerous marches, protests, and vigils throughout the nation. The Black Lives Matter movement has shed light on the injustices facing Black communities and has provided a statement of affirmation that Black lives do indeed matter. Dr. Luke Wood, Ph.D. will draw parallels between the ways that Black boys and men are devalued and over-criminalized in society and the ways that they are educated. Tangible solutions for promoting the learning, development, and success of Black males are offered. 
This presentation was originally scheduled as the keynote at CAMFT's conference that was cancelled due the COVID-19 pandemic. CAMFT recognized the importance of presenting this information to MFTs now when therapists are empowered to help their clients talk openly about the profound mental health consequences that racial traumas may have on people within historically oppressed populations.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
  1. Identify two parallels between the ways that Black boys and men are devalued and over-criminalized in society and ways that they are educated.
  2. Identify two tangible solutions for promoting the learning, development, and success of Black males.
