PSYC0407

Racism and Mental Health

Racism and Mental Health
Racism is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon that often includes various incidents, responses, and coping mechanisms. We will examine the experience of racism in the U.S. and how it might influence mental health outcomes in different ethnic and racial groups. We will also consider that experience as a possible traumatic event and examine the mental health issues that might emerge. We will deepen our understanding of minority mental health issues and the unique factors that need to be considered in the assessment, treatment and diagnosis of several racial and ethnic groups in the United States.
