Reading Club

Inspired by our commitment to deconstruct white privilege and address the issues of racism that permeate the child maltreatment field, the Commission for Racial Justice in Child Maltreatment will launch a Reading Club in 2021. Led by a diverse group of professionals, topics such as racism in psychotherapy, recognizing micro-aggressions in child maltreatment work, and addressing white supremacy culture, will be discussed. Please join us for what are sure to be important conversations as we share and reflect on the critical issue of promoting racial justice. The reading club is free to attend, regardless of APSAC membership. You can use any of the links below to register for all sessions at once, or register on an ad hoc basis for the sessions you're able to attend.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact
