How does the trauma of slavery continue to impact African Americans today? Examine how centuries of racism, oppression, and violence have led to contemporary social problems and structural inequalities that continue to negatively affect African Americans. Understand how #transgenerationaltrauma and systems of oppression have heavily influenced our current moment, from racial disparities in our prisons, to the #racialeducation gap, to social justice movements like #BlackLivesMatter. Learn tools that will broaden your understanding of this issue, inform your practice, empower communities, and lay the foundation necessary to ensure the sustained health and well-being of future generations.

Joy DeGruy, PhD, holds a doctorate in social work research. She is an assistant professor at Portland State University and is a member of the international faculty for London's Department of Health. With more than twenty years of practical experience as a professional in the field of social work, she gives workshop attendees practical insight into various cultural and ethnic groups that form the basis of contemporary society. Dr. DeGruy's workshops also go far beyond the topic of cultural sensitivity; she provides specialized clinical work in areas of mental health and ecological resilience.
