If you work with African Americans, Native Americans, Holocaust Survivors and their descendants, inter-generational poverty, or refugees, you are sitting with the legacies of Cultural and Historical Trauma. If your clients differ from you in the areas of race, culture, religion, sexuality, class or gender, your own biases are there as well. This training brings these issues out of the shadows into consciousness, and opens a path towards healing the disenfranchised grief of cultural and historical wounds. In order to be attuned, mindful, effective healers, therapists also need to bring their own bias out of the shadows with the awareness that bias is already there. And since bias is already there, learn to regulate it instead of avoiding it.  Learning and dialogue will be facilitated through lecture, dyadic discussion, experiential exercises and video presentation.
 
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
By participating in this training, attendees will:
· Be able to recognize and assess the impact of cultural and historical traumas in both their clients and themselves
· Avoid the pitfalls of Cultural Blindness
· Learn a 6 Step model of self-regulation
· Learn and experience a model for cultural assessment
· Learn how to hold the dialectic of  the survival narrative while validating the trauma, moving to a strength-based process of change
· Learn interventions that provide a therapeutic counter-balance to micro-aggression and cultural and historical traumas
