Trauma Integrated Behavioral Health w/ Dr. Thema Bryant
October 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$35.00
This special program presents a collective viewing of a spoken-word recitation on healing trauma by Thema Bryant followed by a presentation and discussion with Dr. Bryant about a liberatory approach to behavioral health and trauma recovery. This lens centers sociopolitical and sociocultural factors that intertwine with the multiple layers of identity within each client, rather than an individual-level conceptualization of resilience, pathology, or thoughts-feelings-behaviors in treating racial-ethnic trauma. Dr. Bryant will spell out a liberatory treatment approach to internalized oppression and the impact of state-sanctioned violence and intergenerational trauma, that starts with naming and acknowledging various forms of oppression and the effects of a long history of brutality on community members. She will also share about the significance of culturally centered practices that tap into community solidarity and love, joy, resistance, and healing, with humility, empathy, and respect for client and culture.
