MANAGING RACIAL STRESS: GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS
a conversation with leaders of the American Psychological Association’s RESilience Initiative
Why We Gather. Black and brown people suffer disproportionately from chronic stress due to perceived discrimination, neighborhood stress, daily stress, family stress, acculturative stress, environmental stress and maternal stress. A large and growing body of research shows that these racial effects on health are measurable and negative. In order to raise healthy children, especially children of color, it is crucial that we understand and manage racial stress, both that of the children and that of the adults who care for them. Join us for this conversation with leaders of the American Psychological Association’s racial and ethnic socialization (RESilience) initiative for a discussion on what racialized stress is and to share information about steps we can take to minimize its effects.
