About the Workshop

Historically, people from underrepresented groups have encountered ongoing experiences of oppression throughout their lifetimes.  These experiences have impacted their mental health and the social conditions in which they live. The first workshop has three major objectives:

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of the historical and political underpinnings of racism and classism and how these ideals continue to impact communities today;
  2. The facilitator will introduce the concept of racial trauma and explore the impact of racial trauma on individuals and communities in which we work; and

  3. Participants will be given strategies to learn how to effectively communicate with those who have been traumatized.

The facilitator will use case examples, small group discussions, and role-plays to engage participants throughout the workshop.  The overarching goal will be to provide a historical context to facilitate understanding and inform effective communication and interactions.
