About the Event

The Defining Racism and Understanding Racial Trauma is a two-day event that has recently been approved to provide 5.5 NCSAPPB credits. Our application for NASWNC is currently pending.

The purpose of this two-day conference is to raise awareness of racial trauma in the African American and people of color communities.

The goal of this conference is to equip counselors, social workers and therapists with the tools necessary to help them meet the needs of their clients and to educate people on a topic that is rarely discussed.
