An association exists between direct experiences of racial discrimination and substance use, however, less is known about the effects of vicarious or indirect exposure to racial injustice. In this presentation, we will explore the impact of viewing racial injustice in the media on substance use among people of color. We will highlight considerations for educators, supervisors, and clinicians related to the effects of vicarious racial trauma on substance use.
