Trauma and Soul in American Culture
March 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $30 – $45 Cost at the Door: $40
Presented by Steven Galipeau, M.A., M.Div.
The Christine Ford testimony to the Senate and Brett Kavanaugh’s response gives us a close look at a critical cultural complex in our country. This complex limits the ability to hear the pain and suffering of people, be it women, Native Americans, African Americans, and other marginalized individuals and groups. This ignorance and lack of empathy then gives “privilege” to those who might nor really deserve it. A review of the testimony of these two people will serve as a starting point to look at his complex in a broader sense, including gun violence, corporate abuse, and other regularly repeating cultural events that cause significant trauma.
- Identify cultural attitudes which preclude empathetic and compassionate responses to individual and collective trauma;
- Examine attitudes that can facilitate more reconciliation when such defensive dynamics become activated.
