Recently, Dr. Anthony Fauci stated the Black community was facing a “double whammy” due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recent civil unrest. Research has shown that psychological distress is linked to high rates of discrimination and microaggressions, and has contributed to thoughts and acts of suicide for Black children. This workshop will explore the racial trauma experienced by Black children and how play therapists can utilize Adlerian play therapy principles to increase their coping skills and connection with caring adults. Time will be spent exploring play themes that may reflect signs of trauma, grief or suicide and play techniques to help adequately address those issues.
