Disrupting Anti-Black Racism in the Judicial System: A Focus on Child Rearing and African American Parents

The American Bar Association (ABA), American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Counseling Association (ACA) recommend that court officials and mental health clinicians are educated about anti-Black racism and its impact on the integrity of African American families. It is well documented that the child rearing practices of African American mothers and fathers have been scrutinized and pathologized by helping professionals which has led to the overrepresentation of African Americans in the child welfare system.

AFCC is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. AFCC is also approved to sponsor continuing education for psychologists licensed to practice in the state of New York. AFCC maintains responsibility for this program and its content. The program is eligible for up to 1 hour of continuing education for psychologists.
