Lecture 4: Difficult Conversations of Racism and Social Inequities in Child Psychiatry Training
Health disparities and injustices experienced by black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities have been amplified in the wake of the current pandemic, leading to increased discussion within residency programs around the themes of diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice. This panel discussion focuses on creating safe spaces in which to discuss and address the challenges with trainees. It also highlights experiences of the trainees of color. Furthermore, this includes an exploration of changes that are being considered across different programs, particularly with regard to workforce development, ways training programs can provide effective services to vulnerable communities, as well as the steps that are being taken to address issues of systemic bias, social inequities, implicit bias, microaggressions, and antiracism in a training program.
- Participants will learn about the experiences of trainees of minority background.
- Participants will identify the issues of structural racism and microagression in training.
- Participants will discuss ways in which the training programs can address inequities, microaggression, and systemic racism.
