Talking about race is important and hard.
It can bring up intense and difficult feelings.
Many of us, especially white parents, have neither experience nor role models on how to talk about race, racial discrimination, or privilege. But! We want our children to grow up in a world where race is understood and handled far better than it is now, so we recognize that a better future requires us to lean in to that discomfort.
Join Katie Malinski, LCSW-S and Jeffrey Swan, LPC for a conversation about talking with kids about race. We will share what current research can teach us about talking about race, the concept of “color blindness,” and inherent bias. We will offer examples of conversations about race, discrimination, and privilege that parents can have with their children at various ages. We are both therapists and parents, and we’ll speak from the heart about our experiences talking about race with our own kids.
This 1 hour webinar is for parents of any aged child.
