Join us online to hear two internationally known experts address how trauma impacts all of our lives and how racial trauma is often an unseen force. Where does it come from: symptoms, the stressors, impact, and resources to addressing trauma? How does racial trauma affect the individual and communities? What can we do to end racial trauma?

Following the presentations from noted experts Dr. Jules Harrell and Dr. Kevin Washington, participants will break into small facilitated groups to share what they learned, discuss the impact of trauma and discover solutions for how our community can better address trauma. 

“Living and Coping with Trauma: The Unseen Force” is in response to participants’ requests from the Big Conversation forum, “Many Wounds to Heal” and the events and revelations of dealing with COVID.

The forum is brought to you by The Big Conversation Partners in Dismantling Racism and Privilege in Southern Maryland.

Panelists:

Dr. Camara Jules P Harrell headshopt Dr. Camara Jules P. Harrell is a 30 year professor of clinical psychology at Howard University and a researcher in the field of the effects of stress and racism on the health of African Americans. His research interests include psychometrics and psychology of racism, personality theories, assessment, and research, and psychophysiology. Much of Dr. Harrell's research examines the effect of racism as a stressor to African Americans, resulting in poorer health.

Dr. Kevin Washington is an Associate Professor and Head of the Sociology and Psychology at Grambling State University. He is founder and CEO, of Nyanasapo Empowerment Works Unlimited Counseling Consultation.  As a Fulbright-Hays scholar he researched the impact of socializing institutions on the healing or restructuring of post-apartheid South Afrika. Not only does he work on healing the psycho-spiritual wounds that are present within people as a result of cultural and historical trauma, he continues developing healing paradigms for persons of Afrikan ancestry who have been impacted by Persistent Enslavement Systemic Trauma (PEST).
