Death By A thousand Nicks:
Healing The Wounds of Racial Trauma - Diagnosis & Treatment

Professor Alvin Poussaint described the cumulative impact of microaggressions as “death by a thousand nicks”. What might seem small and insignificant can become ingrained into the very fiber of one’s being, causing the body to live in a constant state of alert.

This workshop will utilize the conventional and expanded Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) studies to discuss how racial trauma impacts the physical, social, and psychological health of individuals and communities. Participants will recognize systemic oppressions, confront implicit bias and engage in dialogue around racial healing, empowerment and equity.
