Decolonizing Trauma Work Part 2: Working in Systems You are Combating

Event Date:

July 8, 2021

Event Time:

4:30 pm

This follow up class is designed to dive deeper into the work of decolonizing mental health settings and practices. We will address the difficult position most of us find ourselves in, having to participate in the very practices and systems that we aim to abolish and replace. This workshop will be more interactive so come prepared ready to engage. This event will center Black Queer experiences but will be useful for anyone looking to help themselves and clients who are trying to work and heal in hard spaces and situations.

Workshop Objectives

  • Attendees will gain a greater understanding of trauma work with BIPOC in systems
  • Attendees will enhance skills and critical consciousness around the systems they participate in.
  • Attendees will learn/enhance skills for work with ongoing trauma
  • Attendees will examine their own expectations and needs as treatment providers and members of systems
