May 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $35.00 – $50.00
Presented by Fanny Brewster, Ph.D.
The deepest wounding of the American psyche has been its divide along racial lines. The intergenerational trauma that has traveled for centuries due to racism has had a profound psychological effect on BIPOC populations. In this presentation, we will examine some of the ways in which Jungian psychology can become more engaged in recognition of this intergenerational trauma and what it can offer towards healing of all Americans. What is the remedy within the poison of racism?
- Identify psychological traumatic events representative of racism on collective levels.
- Describe characteristics of post-traumatic slave disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder, correlating the two.
