As we continue to grapple with the uncertainly of a global pandemic, people across our nation have taken to the streets and boardrooms to demand change around inequities and their devastating effects. In addition, the media is saturated with stories about the impact on health, wealth and relationships on intergenerational traumatic events. However, for Black, Indigenous and other people of color, these stories in the form of news or social media posts are more that just stories--they are examples of their lived experiences enduring trauma, historically and currently, which have led nd will continue to led to health and other social disparities.
Please join us as we explore the historically and contemporary inequities faced by Black, Indigenous and other people of color, the impacts these inequities have on those we support, the impact on the staff, and the trauma informed, resilience-oriented strategies for how to address these impacts at the individual and community level to build a future that promotes healing and resilience.
The speaker is Linda Henderson-Smith, Ph.D., LPC, CPCS, CCMP
