Black Mothers: Intergenerational Systemic Trauma and Racism

logo      logo


Whether it is cross-racial or as a BIPOC provider, understanding the socio-emotional challenges and legacy of racism on Black Mothers is an imperative part of first doing no harm and empowering healing and well-being. This presentation honors the ways in which Black Mothers have inherited the pain and impact of racism, and how our systems and institutions have embedded those racial disparities at great cost to them and their children. Included will be points of consideration and action for providers toward solution-focused interventions for this important population.


  • To highlight the socio-emotional and biological impact of intergenerational experiences of racism, and how they can affect engagement, utilization, and outcomes in Behavioral Health.
  • To equip providers with information and principles of caring that can mitigate the impact of these realities on their efforts with affected moms.
  • To empower a deeper understanding and course of action to disrupt systems of oppression and racism with health services that can de-rail the well-being of Black Mothers and their children.
