Racism: the Forgotten Trauma. With Katherine Thornley, Psychologist (Phos Psychology).
Katherine led a fascinating, thought-provoking conversation about the impacts of racism as an ongoing, and sadly, inescapable trauma for many members of our community. She asked participants to use our imaginations, and engage in the narratives and lived experiences of others to explore and formulate the influence of racism on communities and individuals. She offered some welcome suggestions for professional development beyond text books and trainings created by dominant cultural groups, and invited us to consider art as a form of professional development to support the art of therapy. What a great presentation, thank you Katherine! Folks, keep an eye out for more from Phos Psychology.
