My Identity Matters: The Intersection of Trauma and Racism
Program description: This Intensive will explore how racism, discrimination, and racialized violence are primary or secondary traumas for many individuals. The stark reality of hate in America disproportionally impacts individuals who have been historically discriminated against and who have been generationally disenfranchised. Since individuals who are a part of these communities deserve access to safe and affirming places to get much needed physical and emotional care, participants will take part in an interpersonal dialogue on the impact of racism and oppression in their practice. Participants will examine the role that an understanding of the concepts of intersectionality, race, gender identity and sexual identity can have in the delivery of effective trauma informed care.
