The impact of racial stress is an ongoing force in the lives of most African Americans, often exacerbating difficulties in their primary relationships. This symposium is designed for couple and family therapists to hear from four experts who will speak to the special considerations of effective, anti-racist informed, Emotionally Focused Therapy. Topics to be covered include the self-of-the-therapist, unique challenges of Black couples, racial trauma and African American men, special issues for interracial couples, and cultural humility with African American couples. The program will conclude with a moderated panel discussion among the four presenters.
