Turning Pain into Purpose: The Role of Behavioral Health Specialists in Decreasing Police Brutality and Police Killings of Unarmed African Americans

Thu Nov 4, 2021 1:00–4:00 PM


Politicians, the clergy, the media, criminal justice specialists, legal specialists and concerned citizens have weighed-in on how to decrease police-related violence. We have yet to hear from the Behavioral Health Profession. This presentation will begin with a historical perspective on police brutality and police killings of unarmed African Americans. We will identify behavioral health strategies to decrease police-related violence. A 14-point strategy for decreasing police killings of unarmed African Americans will also be discussed.
