PROMOTING STRESS MANAGEMENT

Happy Family

FACILITATING FAMILIAL BONDING

We seek to assess the effectiveness of the EMBRace Intervention to improve racial socialization competency for families.

We seek to decrease parental and child racial stress and trauma while promoting coping skills.

We seek to promote bonding between parents and children.

 

"And also, like, I say this, I love this program, because it talks about other things, the things that we don't talk about all the time. We don't talk about racism, like that, but it’s real. It’s real."
