Applied and Interdisciplinary Perspectives to Support Ethnic and Racial Issues within Child Development | Webinar


Tuesday, January 30, 2024,  1-2 p.m. ET.

Event Details

About the webinar:

From a developmentally holistic and intersectional perspective, ethnic and racial issues (ERI) are important to the development of all children and their grown-ups (i.e., not limited to people with minoritized identities). Despite this importance, many professionals working with children may not know whether or how to respond to or incorporate issues related to ethnicity, race, and other identities in their interactions or work. This webinar explores applied perspectives from mental health, physical health, and educational perspectives to orient to ERI issues from a holistic perspective in work with children.

Learning Goals & Objectives: 

  • Explores what aspects of ERI are salient and should be prioritized in applied contexts.
  • Identifies opportunities and challenges in addressing ERI from an intersectional perspective.
  • Outlines next steps and areas for increased interdisciplinary collaboration in supporting ERI towards anti-racist development.
