Healing Racial Trauma

Training Description

Racial trauma is an inescapable by-product of persistent exposure to oppressive circumstances that emotionally, psychologically, and physically devastates one’s sense of self while simultaneously depleting one’s strategies for coping. It is a life altering and debilitating experience that affects countless numbers of people of color over multiple generations. Unfortunately, the failure to consider the interrelationship between racial oppression and trauma limits our ability to work effectively with People of Color. Even when work is trauma-informed, it rarely devotes adequate attention to racial oppression and the pervasive trauma associated with it.

This daylong training will provide a comprehensive overview of the anatomy of racial trauma and the debilitating hidden wounds associated with it. Strategies for treating the invisible wounds of racial trauma will be provided. Special attention will be devoted to an exploration of racially-based self of the provider issues that may impede and/or facilitate effective therapeutic work with racially traumatized clients. The training will also address wider organizational interventions that support the healing of racial trauma.

Learning Objectives:

 After attending this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Identify the invisible wounds of racial trauma that often get entangled in work with clients of color;
  • Use trauma-informed treatment strategies tailored to work with racially traumatized clients of color;
  • Identify critical self of the provider issues that may impede and/or facilitate effective trauma-based work with oppressed populations, especially those suffering from racial trauma.

He has won considerable acclaim for the contributions that his publications and videotapes have made toward challenging our society to think critically about the hidden but significant connections that often exist between trauma and issues of oppression. In addition to his own writing, Dr. Hardy serves on the editorial boards of six publications including the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, the Journal of Family Psychotherapy, the Journal of Divorce, the Journal of Couples Therapy, the Psychotherapy Networker, and the Journal of Family Counseling.

Dr. Hardy, along with a colleague, developed the training manual and curriculum that has been used in New York City to train licensed clinicians in Trauma Based Family Therapy. This program was funded by the September 11th Fund of New York and was co-sponsored with the NYC Mental Health Association. Additionally, he has provided training and consultation to an extensive list of Human Services agencies devoted to providing Trauma-Based, culturally competent care to children, couples and families.
