Teaching Race to Children and Adolescents
|Date||03/13/17 3:00pm to 4:00pm|
|Presenter(s)||Dr. Howard Stevenson|
The focus of this webinar is on how recent and past events of racial dehumanization of Black and Brown people and children have left parents struggling with how to raise children in such an hostile public environment. The stress of parenting boys and young men of color requires a racial literacy or the ability to read, recast, and resolve racially stressful encounters for youth and the parents.
This webinar will illuminate the research on the emotional costs of racial dehumanization on health, identify strategies for parents, educators, and youth to counter that dehumanization, and demonstrate how children influence adults through their struggles, triumphs and questions about racial politics.
