Workshop Description:

The current literature has noted significant distinctions between racial trauma and traditional PTSD. However, our trauma assessment tools and therapy approaches do not account for these differences (potentially leading to ineffective treatment for BIPOC clients). This presentation will explore the symptomology differences between racial trauma and PTSD as well as meaningful assessment tools to provide an accurate diagnosis and relevant treatment for BIPOC individuals. This workshop fulfills 1.5 of the 3 hours necessary according to the KRS 319 ethics/risk management requirement for psychology professionals.
