Addressing Trauma in Minority Populations
Most of the training in the major trauma treatment modalities don’t address racial or cultural issues. I have learned over time that I must be willing to do my own training in this area to ensure I stay attuned to my client’s complex experiences of trauma not only from a brain and body place but also from a race and cultural place.
For me, this is a new journey. Over the last couple of years, I have decided to lean into understanding how my treatment of trauma has to change to incorporate the different experiences of my clients on a cultural and race level. I have started to learn how to open these conversations up and to be open to my own experience of these conversations. so I can make space for my client to have their experiences.
In this week’s vlog, I invite you to join me on this journey and to either start or continue your growth in this area when it comes to trauma treatment in the minority population as it relates to race and culture. Check it out below!
