This event has already occurred!

Dr. De Lacy Davis, a retired New Jersey police sergeant, youth mental health advocate and author of Black Cops Against Brutality: A Crisis Action Plan, will be the featured speaker at Family Partners of Morris & Sussex Counties Lunch & Learn on Thursday July 9, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. He will explore trauma and its relation to racial and regional inequalities. Today’s climate of racial polarization affects everyone, especially those who are directly impacted. With the streets of the U.S. filled with protesters since the killing of Mr. George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Dr. Davis will take us on a journey to explore and better understand the many levels of this trauma. He will examine the traumatic impact of racism, and how it affects our children and our families. He will explain the difference between implicit and explicit bias and how it relates to experiential trauma. Dr. Davis will provide solutions that we as caregivers, educators and providers can use to help our youth navigate these challenges.
