Webinar #5 Agenda:

Evaluation data gleaned from pre and post-test results in NTI’s pilot across the country identified race and identify formation as two areas with the greatest knowledge gains. This webinar will focus on key concepts, approaches, tools, and strategies presented in two modules, Race, and Identity Formation.

We will describe the dynamics of racial identity and racial socialization, implications for the mental health of children and youth, and specific strategies to promote positive racial identity. We will also discuss strategies for helping children and youth do the work of understanding of identity and self-concept and provide strategies for working with parents to integrate the history of birth family and collaborating with mental health professionals to support children’s identity work.
