For the 2019 APA convention, we are submitting a symposium presentation to Division 16 on the topic of Trauma-Informed care for African American males in schools. We are seeking collaborators who do similar research who would like to join us in this proposal.

The symposia seeks to explore themes related to:

– African American males perceptions of discipline
– The impact of complex trauma on youths academic, mental health and behavioral outcomes
– Trauma-informed school-based practices
– Culturally sensitive trauma practices

We are looking for practitioner-researchers who have both clinical and research experience with this topic and specific population. Submissions of original empirical research are strongly encouraged. Systematic reviews and meta-analysis are also welcome.
