Equity Chat on Systemic Racism and the Consultative Stance

Equity Chat on Systemic Racism and the Consultative Stance

Date: Monday, April 19, 2021
Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pmET / 12:00pm – 2:00pmPT

The Center of Excellence (CoE) IECMHC Equity Chat Series is designed to provide a forum to further dialogue on equity topics in order to support more equitable systems and strengthen culturally responsive IECMHC practices to reduce disparities and improve child outcomes.  

Studies suggest that Infant & Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation can be an effective equity practice. The Equity Chat in April offered an opportunity to explore the mechanisms that make this possible. Specifically, Equity Chat facilitators Kadija Johnston and Dr. Eva Marie Shivers will ponder how the consultant’s way of being – the Consultative Stance – contributes to dismantling structural racism and other forms of oppression and supports equitable treatment of young children and their families.
