2nd Annual Black Play Therapy Symposium: Healing Communities of Color Through A Multicultural Lens

Tell me more. 

Communities of color face many challenges, including racial tension, police brutality, substance abuse, domestic violence and community violence that contribute to mental health issues and consequently affect children and families. The Black Play Therapy Symposium is packed with innovative and thought-provoking workshops that will offer implementable strategies to shift the way mental health professionals provide treatment and incorporate play therapy with communities of color. The delivery of multicultural treatment should recognize that a client's race and culture influence their personality, decision-making skills, and reasons for or willingness to seek any mental health help. Enjoy a month of learning and networking at the 2nd Annual Black Play Therapy Symposium: Healing Communities of Color and earn up to 15 contact CEs. 

Platform: The symposium will be via zoom meeting. All participants MUST be onscreen to receive contact hours. Registered participants will email directions to access the online symposium.
