This course will focus on how historical and systemic inequity continues to
exist for Black males. Although some of these biases may be unconscious,
stereotypes and the misrepresentation of Black males in the media often
interferes with their ability to receive fair treatment. Some Black males
develop a sense of distrust towards community supports such as law
enforcement and mental health providers, which can hinder their willingness
to seek and engage in services.

Participants will:
• Explore how systematic oppression, implicit bias, and unaddressed
physical and mental health can impact Black males.
• Identify how cultural responses to mental health can impede Black
males’ willingness to participate in counseling.
• Discover specific skills intended to engage with Black males more
effectively.
• Learn skills to promote psychological safety of the Black male.
• Be offered skills and techniques to assess and evaluate how their own
values and experiences with Black males contribute to service
delivery.
