ISDP Statement on risks of racism to children

Consistent with the focus of our scientific community, we are enraged in particular on behalf of Black children who are repeatedly subjected to racial injustice and profiling of themselves and their family members. These victims of racial injustice also face a system that jails their fathers and male role models in disproportionate numbers and thus deprives them of the full range of potential caregiving experiences. When our justice system kills and over-incarcerates Black men, it disrupts families and affects children. Science tells us that responsive and sensitive caregiving builds healthy brains. The stress and inequalities that Black people face from the current system make it so much harder for caring parents to provide this support to their children.
