Feb 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register for Therapeutic Conditions: Racial Trauma with BIPOC Communities

York University’s Centre for Sexual Violence Response, Support & Education (The Centre) will be hosting Therapeutic Conditions: Racial Trauma with BIPOC Communities on February 26 (Friday) from 12noon to 1.30pm featuring Dwayne Brown and Joseph Smith of Generation Chosen.

Moving beyond celebration, Black History Month is a time wherein we should all begin to reflect on the psycho-social implications of inequity. This 90-minute session will involve transparent and authentic conversations about Racial Trauma, Microaggressions, PTSS, Impostor Syndrome and the deplorable state of mental health amongst members of the Black community. Through exploring the historical antecedents to this issue and engaging with the contemporary problems that encourage it, we will think through the institutional mechanisms that need to be crafted in order to show up for those who are most vulnerable and in need.
