Counselors and counselor educators must demonstrate multicultural competence in professional activities such as counseling, teaching, and supervision. The current sociopolitical climate necessitates that counselors are attuned to racialized stress in students and in clients. Racial battle fatigue (RBF) is a concept that is useful in conceptualizing the cumulative impact of racism and microaggression on racially marginalized persons. This session will focus on understanding RBF and its manifestation in African American emerging adults. Through an interactive session, participants will learn and utilize strategies that may ameliorate RBF in the student and client populations that we serve. Additionally, counselor educators will consider pedagogical strategies that address RBF in the training and preparation of future counselors.
