The Child Abuse Training and Technical Assistance Centers (CATTA) Training Project is hosting a webinar titled Racial Trauma, Healing, and Resiliency: A Web-Based Opportunity for Learning and Growth presented by Taquelia Washington, Jo Brownson, Amelia Ortega on Tuesday, June 21, 2020 from 10:30am-11:45am PST.
The most recent murders of Black and Brown people across the United States continues to highlight the various ways in which racism creates trauma responses for people living in this country. While racism is not a new construct, what is new is conceptualizing the impact of racism as a form of trauma. It is important that providers committed to working with victims of crime understand not only what racial trauma means but also learn the ways in which its symptomology may show up both within themselves and those they serve. Depending on the skin that one lives in, the ways in which one is impacted by racism is vastly different. As a result, this training will also provide perspective of how different racial groups are impacted. Special focus will be given to how one may be able to guide their own healing and promote resiliency both within themselves and those they serve. The week following this webinar, there will be limited space available for those interested in going deeper in their learning to participate in racial affinity-based exploration.
By the end the training, participants will be able to:
1. Identify and describe Racial Trauma
2. Explain 3 different symptoms associated with Racial Trauma
3. Experience embodiment exercises that they can use to foster healing and
promote resiliency within themselves and those they serve
