Race and Trauma (Collective Trauma)
Trauma is often not considered when it comes to talking about the issue of race/racism. Trauma, commonly defined as a distressing and disturbing experience, invites us to consider deep-seeded effects that racism has had and no one has escaped! My hope is to help us understand and further explore how trauma is still present in each of us (collectively) as we try to engage the issue of race and racism. I believe growing in our understanding will affect both how we listen and engage with one another, resulting in more intentionality, compassion, and curiosity.
