Empowering Youth and Families: Anti-Racist Psychotherapy using EMDR and Brainspotting

Friday, April 16

9:00AM - 11:00AM CDT

Register Now

For social workers and therapists who work with traumatized youth and family members, it is important for us to not only provide trauma-informed care but also to use reduce the chances for additional harm. Race is an important factor which is infrequently discussed yet still plays an important role in the therapist-client dyad. EMDR and Brainspotting are trauma-informed and evidenced-based approaches which are effective for PTSD symptoms. Anti-racist psychotherapy is a framework which incorporates all of the above, as well as an understanding of the social, historical, and neurobiological mechanisms which underlie current symptoms of distress and racial trauma. In situations where there are racial differences (or similarities) between the client and professional, the social construction theory of race, and how we either respond or neglect it, can either improve the therapeutic alliance or maintain therapeutic ruptures. The presentation will involve an anti-racist critique of the historical function of social services in racial contexts, recommendations for conducting EMDR and Brainspotting from an anti-racist perspective, strategies for engaging youth and families in the trauma resolution process, and self-care recommendations for professionals who work with traumatized populations.
