The historical effects of racism on Black communities continue to have an extraordinary effect on the psychologist-client relationship. Research suggests that Black communities experience difficulty with trusting psychologists and may present as resistant to treatment. Historically, this lack of trust has been named “cultural paranoia.” In her presentation, Dr. Burrell will tell the story of time. She will connect significant historical assaults to ongoing disparate practices provided to Black communities. She will challenge the psychologists’ role and the generational effects of mental health within the Black communities. She will provide therapeutic insights and discuss how to gain rapport and provide appropriate, helpful, treatment interventions.
