A Day with Dr. Janet Helms

RAMS is pleased to present the Ninth Annual Evelyn Lee Diversity and Cultural Competency Training!

A Day with Dr. Janet Helms 
Using Racial Identity in Everyday Life 

WHEN: December 5, 2014 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (Registration at 8:30am)
WHERE: West Bay Conference Center, Grand Ballroom 1290 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA 94115


Course Description: People in the United States are afraid to talk about race and racism. As a result when racial tragedies, such as the Ferguson police riots or the George Zimmerman trial occur, there is no common language for coming to a shared understanding of the significance of the events across racial groups. Without empathy toward “the other,” there can be no peaceful resolution of societal racial problems. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn to use racial identity theory to understand their own and others’ within-group and between-group perceptions and reactions to race-related events.

Course Objectives: • To learn to differentiate race from culture • To learn to recognize the dimensions of White racial identity • To learn to recognize the dimensions of People of Color identity • To use social interaction theory to understand how people do or do not talk about race

Featured Speaker: Janet E. Helms, PhD is the Augustus Long Professor in the Department of Counseling, Developmental, and Educational Psychology and Director of the Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture at Boston College. She is the past president of the Society of Counseling Psychology (Division 17 of the American Psychological Association [APA]). She has written over sixty empirical and theoretical articles and four books on the topics of racial identity and cultural influences on assessment and counseling practice. Dr. Helms' work has been acknowledged with numerous awards that include "Distinguished Career Contributions to Research" award from the Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues, awarded at the APA convention, among many others.
