Our youth are living through a critical and pivotal watershed moment in global history.

As if adolescence and identity formation weren’t hard enough, the global pandemic and racial unrest have introduced another layer of stress and trauma in developing youth across multicultural and ethnic experiences. 

If you’re not sure how to support these young people, you’re not alone!

Join Dr. Eboni Webb for this compelling 90-minute recording that focuses on racial trauma through the lens of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  You’ll learn:

  • How racial trauma impacts adolescent development
  • How it informs body politics and self-image
  • DBT strategies for adolescents to cope, thrive and build a life worth living amidst racial trauma



This online program is worth 1.5 hours CPD.
