Participants will explore the need for a specialization in the treatment of trauma among African Americans. Participants will examine the psyche of African American males who have experienced trauma, while also being impacted by racism, hegemonic masculinity, mental health stigma, and cultural views of mental illness. Participants will explore how counselors engage in trauma counseling, enhance the instruction of trauma counseling, and enrich the supervision provided to newly licensed counselors.
