The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials will hold a timely webinar on the impacts of systemic racism, health disparities, and COVID-19 and how professionals can help those with whom they work improve their circumstances and become more resilient.
Per ASTHO, “How do seemingly unrelated but overwhelming global events connect to create complex trauma? How do we reckon with systemic racism, health disparities, COVID-19, and the unprecedented social and economic stress impacting individuals, families, and communities across cultures, generations, genders, and racial groups? Join us to learn about the tools for supporting individuals as they develop healing and resiliency around complex trauma.”
