Racism Using a Neurodevelopment Lens ( full- registration now closed)

Presented by: Rick Griffin

ACES & Resilience Webinar Series:  Washington State Essentials for Childhood is launching a five part webinar series as an extension of our ongoing community of practice on ACES, Trauma and Resilience.

This webinar uses discoveries in neuroscience to offer a new way of understanding racism and other forms of discrimination.  The course suggests that the key to overcoming racism is looking beneath the behaviors of racisms to its origins in neurodevelopment. Seeing issues like racism as a developmental process allows us to see that only a compassionate and ideology-free attitude toward the racist can help us understand what it is that he or she needs to learn to be more inclusive.
