Just as human beings are not generic, so, too, trauma is an event that is affected by and interacts with people's intersectional identities. This workshop will introduce participants to a mindful model for understanding how to move towards cultural competence in practice with trauma survivors. We will pay particular attention to therapist countertransference/fragility, and to the effects of shame, guilt, privilege, and dominant culture narratives on trauma treatment. Some experience working with trauma survivors is assumed.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how trauma interacts with and infuses intersectional identities.
  2. Utilize strategies for mindful relationship with one's guilt, shame, and fragility. 
  3. Describe how culturally competent practice enhances the effects of treatment.
