Racial trauma, a form of race-based stress, refers to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) reactions to dangerous events and real or perceived experiences of racial discrimination. Such experiences may include threats of harm and injury, humiliating and shaming events, and witnessing racial discrimination toward other BIPOC. Although, similar to posttraumatic stress disorder, racial trauma is unique in that it involves ongoing individual and collective injuries due to exposure and re-exposure to race-based stress. This presentation will introduce definitions, history, and approaches of healing models to challenge racial trauma.
Program Objectives - Participants Will Be Able to:
1) Explore what is racial trauma and how it intersects with all people
2) Explore individual actions that cause racial trauma
3) Review the effects of racial trauma on communities of color
4) Identify Counseling strategies for individuals, communities, professionals, and organizations to prevent and mitigate race-based traumatic stress.
