1.5 Hours Category 1 CME will be provided.
The highly publicized murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor; the worldwide collective activism generated by the Black Lives Matter movement; and the disproportionate COVID-19 deaths of tens of thousands of Black Americans have forced a racial reckoning in our country and in our profession. Amidst racism’s heightened recognition as a global public health crisis, individual practitioners, academic medical centers, journals, and organized professional groups are contemplating strategies and solutions to dismantle it. This 90-minute presentation imagines what antiracism and abolition in the field of psychiatry might look like and posits core components to inform these efforts.
