Free Packet: Flexible and Responsive Treatment Planning for Racism Related Stress

Description

Culturally responsive care describes psychotherapeutic practices that seek to respect the strengths and values of an individual’s cultural background, creates space for individuals to receive support for cultural stressors (e.g., racism), and acknowledges the interaction between the individual and their surrounding environments. The primary focus of this training is to help mental health professionals feel more confident and effective in offering culturally responsive assessment and treatment planning for experiences of racism-related stress when working with BIPOC patients. This presentation is based on the Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Healing Unifying Principles (or REACH UP – DeLapp & Gallo, 2022) and references the latest guidelines for culturally responsive care with patients who are BIPOC. Specifically, this training will clarify the potential mental health impacts of systemic, cultural, and interpersonal forms of racism on BIPOC, introduce assessment materials for evaluating these impacts, and provide recommendations on how to incorporate evidence-based interventions rooted in CBT, DBT, and ACT to address the psychological impacts of RRS. Notably, this training will also feature an overview of experiential exercises and materials included in Dr. DeLapp’s REACH workbook that will be published with Guilford Press (Release Date: TBD 2024).

Instructor

Ryan DeLapp, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist in New York, Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia, and the Founder and Director of the Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Healing (REACH) program at The Ross Center. Dr DeLapp is widely recognized for his expertise in supporting minority individuals with healing from and learning to navigate cultural stressors within their lives and has developed a novel program called REACH (Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Healing). The REACH Program adapts evidenced-based treatments to help teens and young adults develop protective skills to alleviate the impact of race-based stress. This program is derived from over 10 years of Dr. DeLapp’s research and clinical practice. And, from this work, he has authored over 20 publications and has conducted over 100 presentations discussing considerations for assessing and treating racism-related stress in diverse populations, including a recent publication introducing a model for helping clinicians flexibly adapt treatment plans to address disclosures of race-based stress during therapy (DeLapp & Gallo, 2022). The culmination of these considerations will be featured in his upcoming REACH self-help workbook for adolescents and young adults of color that will be published in collaboration with Guildford Publishing (Release Date in 2024).
