Reclaiming Our Humanity and Voices through PROTEST: Responding to Racial Trauma and Violence
A one and a half-day conference for people of color and white allies in mental and behavioral healthcare, education, youth services, faith, government, activism, and the broader community.
Susan Raffo ”Working with the original wounds: how our bodies internalize the systems we want to change”
Description: Her presentation will explore the relationship between violence, anger and protest and how conditioning, developmental, generational trauma impact these things and how systemic/structural oppression impacts these things. This would look, in particular, at how systemic racism depends on developmental trauma and its relationship to anger from a body-based approach.
Panel: Activism: A Systemic and Communal Call to Action (Dr. Manijeh Daneshpour, Susan Raffo, Mason Persons) (Renita)
