2020 and 2021 have been tough years to say the least. In light of police brutality against Africans and African Americans, and rising hate crimes/incidents against Asian Americans, how can we as a society keep ourselves mentally healthy and well?  How can we talk to our children about processing these events without traumatizing them? At what point should a person of color experiencing trauma from these events reach out to a licensed psychologist for help?  Join us for this community-based fireside chat to discuss these issues and more.


  • Individual and Community Trauma
  • Best Practices to Keep Sane and Mentally Strong
  • How to Talk with Children and Teens about Police Brutality and Hate Crimes/Incidents
  • When to Escalate to a Professional
