MANAGING RACIAL STRESS: GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS
a conversation with leaders of the American Psychological Association’s RESilience Initiative

REGISTER TO JOIN this free, hour-long, online conversation with your EmbraceRace community, happening this coming Tuesday, September 25, at 5:30 pm PT/ 8:30 pm ET. 

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.

We look forward to seeing you online on September 25th at 5:30 pm PT/8:30 pm ET. Guardians, parents, teachers, social workers, uncles, grandmothers – you’re all invited. Registering ensures that you will receive the after-event recording and resources whether you attend live or not.
