    Celebrating Black History Month (February)

    When Carter G. Woodson established Negro History week in 1926, he realized the importance of providing a theme to focus the attention of the public. The intention has never been to dictate or limit the exploration of the Black experience, but to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis.

    For those interested in the study of identity and ideology, an exploration of ASALH’s Black History themes is itself instructive. Over the years, the themes reflect changes in how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community.

    The changes notwithstanding, the list reveals an overarching continuity in ASALH–our dedication to exploring historical issues of importance to people of African descent and race relations in America.

    Week 1   2/1 - 2/7    History of Psychology of Black Folks in America

      February is International Boost Self-Esteem Month: Help Avoid Clinical Depression

      Self-esteem, simply put, is how you feel about yourself. And while our self-esteem begins to develop in early childhood, it is not set in stone. In fact, self-esteem is ever-changing throughout your life. There may be times when your self-esteem is at an all time high, and others when it has taken an undesirable dip, perhaps due to a stressful life event or mental health struggle, like clinical depression. Everyone has the power to develop their self-esteem independent of help from others, and the benefits are significant.

                            Tailored for psychologists who provide neuropsychological, psychoeducational evaluations or work with children with ADHD and Learning Disabilities.

                            Designed to provide psychologists with information to help and empower their clients, this webinar will offer a look at the latest challenges parents are facing due to the impact of Covid-19 on the IEP eligibility process. The session will address the following topics:

                            • Common school dissuasion tactics
                            • Introduction to the “Placebo Technique”
                            • A trend: 504 plans


                            Leo Marchena, aka “The IEP Guy” is a professional special education advocate passionate about helping parents of children with ADHD and learning disabilities succeed in all stages of the IEP process by leveraging over twelve years of industry experience.

                            Prior to opening his private practice, Leo spent nine years as a staffer of a school district’s special education department attending over two thousand IEP meetings. This unique experience gave Leo an insider’s perspective on the many cunning strategies schools employ to underserve students.

                            Leo lives in North County where he enjoys the outdoors riding bike trails and playing golf.

                                            Two-hour workshop on white privilege, white fragility and how these can impede the anti-racist work of white psychologists, despite our best intentions.  We will describe and demonstrate how to recognize and interrupt racism in our personal and professional lives.  The workshop will provide opportunity for experiential practice in how to have difficult conversations in which we can skillfully and compassionately confront racism when it occurs in both personal and professional settings.

                                            1.  That participants be able to define white privilege, white fragility and related terms.

                                            2.  That participants be able to explain how white privilege, white fragility and unconscious racism degrade the mental health of all racial groups, including white people.

                                            3.  That participants learn how to respond in instances of white privilege, white fragility and racism, both conscious and unconscious, in personal and professional settings.

But there is yet another group of experts, who have been worrying about the threat of a pandemic even before COVID-19: indigenous peoples. Thanks to their traditional knowledge and their relationship with the natural world, they have long known that the degradation of the environment has the potential to unleash disease.
