 LACPA's Diversity Committee Presents

Racial Trauma: Assessment and Treatment
Across the Lifespan

Intermediate Level

 Presented by Maryam Jernigan-Noesi, Ph.D.

2:00 to 4:00 PM via Zoom

FREE 2.0 LIVE CE Credits 
for LACPA Members


Racial discrimination has been found to significantly predict racial trauma and race-based traumatic stress (e.g., Carter et al., 2013). Despite both the prevalence of racial discrimination and its consistent association with racial trauma, most clinicians lack the necessary training to assess and treat racial trauma in therapeutic settings. As such, this program uses recent and relevant research to facilitate mental health clinicians’ knowledge, assessment, and treatment of racial trauma across the lifespan.

For almost 25 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education workshops and individual consultations, with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from over 70,000 consultations provided to date in order to determine which issues and questions are most pressing for today’s psychologists. Topics will include boundaries and multiple relationships, challenging terminations, working with children in the midst of family conflict, coping with disciplinary complaints, and psychotherapy patient requests for legally-related documentation.

Infidelity poses one of the most common and intimidating issues for clinicians due to the significant amount of trauma and conflict these cases bring to therapy. An understanding of neurodevelopment, affect regulation/dysregulation, trauma, and attachment organization will assist the clinician in diagnosing the individual/couple, and compassionately treating both the betrayer and the betrayed partners. Effective treatment interventions are offered to foster recovery, healing, and the rebuilding of trust in relationships.

Clinicians increasingly face the challenge of recognizing autism spectrum differences and engaging individuals in productive diagnostic interviews. This workshop introduces participants to the MIGDAS-2 sensory–based diagnostic interview system. The session highlights the use of the MIGDAS-2 visual framework and descriptive language to individualize the diagnosis of autism spectrum differences in clinical practice settings. Topics include gaining proficiency in structuring the sensory-based diagnostic interview, creating a positive individualized narrative, and differential diagnosis considerations.
