Workshop Description

Workshop Description: Historically, African American children and their families have been impacted by systemic racism, resulting in racial stress and marginalization. Furthermore, parents are tasked with the added burden of helping African American children navigate racism and discrimination (Harris & Graham, 2014). These challenges can lead to a heightened risk of psychological distress. Despite the risks, African American children overcome the many racial barriers, obstacles, and adversity they face (APA, 2008). This is attributed mainly to protective factors such as resilience. Resilience is a learned ability that helps one to heal and live fully in the face of adversity. Play therapy has therapeutic benefits and processes to promote resilience and overall wellness in children. In this conference, participants will learn the unique needs of African American children and how play therapy can help foster strength and resilience. Participants will also have opportunities to explore their own beliefs and biases.
