About the Program:
As a community committed to understanding and responding to the effects of severe and prolonged trauma, NESTTD has collective expertise on how guilt, shame, and negation prevent people from enjoying the fullness of posttraumatic healing. What if we turn our gaze inward? The racist and sexist forces that construct our society - perpetuated by the violence of silence - also shape the physical and relational spaces shared by counseling professionals.
How do racial guilt, racial shame, and racial negation aggravate wounds caused by racism and prevent well-meaning colleagues from authentically connecting? In this training, you are invited to critically examine how your racial emotions and self-conscious affect your antiracist commitment through didactic instruction, prompted self-reflection, small group break-outs, and large group discussion.
