Healing Identity-Based Trauma

WHERE: Online

WHEN: February 8, 2022 6:00 pm-7:30 pmADD TO CALENDAR

Many discussions under the umbrella of diversity, equity, and inclusion focus on what we can do moving forward, without holding sufficient space to deal with the wounds and potentially trauma that inequality, oppression, and marginalization can cause. In the belief that healing is a form of social justice, this session focuses on strategies individuals and communities can use to heal from identity-based trauma. This training is being developed and facilitated by EQuity.
Learning Objectives:

Participants will define what is a microaggression and explore the emotional impact of identity-based microaggressions
Participants will actively explore and apply a four-step healing process for addressing identity-based trauma
