Event description

Description

Internalized racism is as a disease that infects communities of color (Asanti, 1996). This illness is negatively related to physical health, mental health, and identity development. The purpose of this presentation is two-fold: (a) to raise awareness of internalized racism and its impacts on communities of color and (b) describe the findings of a study of 350 Latina/o/x students that explored predictors of internalized racism. Participants will discuss the relationship between interpersonal racism, assimilation, and internalized racism. Further, strategies for identifying, preventing, and addressing internalized racism will be shared.

Dr. Carlos P. Hipolito-Delgado is Associate Professor in Counseling at the University of Colorado Denver. His research interests include the ethnic identity development of Latinas/os/xs and Chicanas/os/xs, the effects of internalized racism on communities of color, training to improve the cultural competence of counselors, and the sociopolitical development of students of color. Dr. Hipolito-Delgado has received grants from the American Educational Research Association, the Spencer Foundation, Jobs for the Future, and the Hewlett Foundation to study the sociopolitical development of youth. He is a Governing Counseling representative for the American Counseling Association.
