Trauma Informed Engagement: The intersection of racism, bias and traumatic stress

About: Explore the cultural and historical context of trauma, learn about systemic and structural racism in the US and uncover our own implicit bias. We unpack the potential impact of those issues on our engagement with clients, students, customers and families. In part one, we consider how to apply SAMHSA’s six guiding principles for trauma informed care, including trauma informed engagement practices; explore the power of associations on our perceptions; and use a metaphor to understand systemic racism. In part two, we start with a learning simulation about the Racial Wealth Gap; explore our own implicit bias; and work in small groups to reflect upon our learning and create personal and program strategies for trauma-informed engagement.
