Supporting Young Persons of Color with Learning Disabilities: Understanding and Best Practices
Presented by Katherine Tyson McCrea, Ph.D., M.Div. LCSW
Date Change: Tuesday, December 6, 2022
This presentation will help participants to understand racial and gender discrimination as they impact children and adolescents and to learn the best practices in supporting youths’ resilience against negative impacts. It will provide a framework for supporting resilience in youth of color with learning disabilities to aid in preventing violence engagement in youth who are exposed to community violence and poverty. Participants will engage in a seminar style with some short lectures to present core concepts from evidence-based practices and known best practices to support youth of color with learning disabilities. Examples and stories will be given to humanize the concepts, and will conclude with a question and answer session.
Katherine Tyson McCrea, Ph.D., M.Div. LCSW is a Professor in the School of Social Work, at Loyola University Chicago, and the Principal Investigator in the Empowering Counseling Program of the Participatory Science Initiative.
