COPING WITH RACIAL TRAUMA
Time & Location
About The Event
Following the demand for our 'Coping with Racial Trauma' Workshop, we will be facilitating another workshop on Thursday 2nd July 2020.
Racial trauma is the cumulative effects of racism on an individual’s mental and physical health (Carter and Forsyth, 2009). It has been linked to anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Recent events have resurfaced experiences of racial trauma for many people within the Black Community, so we are creating a safe space for those who have been affected. If you have been feeling physically, mentally, socially and spiritually exhausted due to current events, join us on Thursday 2nd July 2020 for:
COPING WITH RACIAL TRAUMA:

- The spectrum of Racial Trauma
- Psychological impacts of racial trauma
- Effective research-backed tools and techniques to cope with racial trauma
