Racism, Adversity, and Child Health

Racial discrimination is a toxic psychosocial stressor that can affect individuals and communities of color.  This presentation will explore how common are perceptions of racism in minority children and explore the research on its effects on child health.  An overview of the development of the PRaCY—a psychometrically valid questionnaire to measure perceptions of racism in children will follow, followed by a model that describes how racism “gets under the skin” to contribute to poor health outcomes as well as racial and ethnic health disparities throughout the lifecourse. Finally, we’ll discuss the inclusion of racism into the expanded definition of “adverse childhood experiences” (ACEs).
