Rescheduled! Interrupting Racism

How prepared are you to respond to what you consider racist remarks coming from a client, family member or a staff member?

Join the Providers' Council for our Interrupting Racism training on Tuesday, May 9th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Randolph. This training was rescheduled from March 14th due to the weather.

Through interactive and thought-provoking exercises, case studies and role plays with other human service providers, we will explore some of the historical origins of racism in the U.S. and elsewhere as well as the lingering effects that still exist in our society today. By integrating this knowledge with our personal experiences, we can develop effective ways to respond to clients, their families and staff members when this behavior occurs.

You will leave with tools and information that will allow you to address racist behavior that may occur in your workplace. These skills will help to both enhance quality of service delivery to a multicultural client population and improve relations among staff.

In this session, you will:

  • Increase your understanding of the presence of racism in the diverse workplace and in society;
  • Increase your comfort level in responding to racially-based remarks by clients, their families and/or staff; and
  • Identify and practice appropriate actions to reduce racist behavior from clients and/or staff.

This training is currently at capacity. To be added to a waitlist, email Zack Mooney or call him at 617-428-3637 ext. 128.
