Speaker: Dr. Tameeka Hunter (she/her)
Transformative racial trauma healing requires that marginalized persons have space, support, advocacy, and most importantly, welcomed accountability from majority cultures to show up as their full, intersectional selves, without shrinking or fragmenting themselves solely for the comfort of others. Complex and generational trauma necessitates that we work to move clients on the margins to the center by building cultural humility before attempting to build cultural competence. As a Black, queer-identified woman, living with a lifelong physical disability, I have experienced the trauma of racism, homophobia, sexism, and ableism in multiple contexts. I will share personal and professional experiences about my healing and transformational journey.
Upon successful completion of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Recognize the influences and impact of social locations on persons whose identities intersect
2. Identify and challenge the intellectualization and minimization of harm to persons with minoritized identities, particularly those at the intersection of race, disability, and other socio-cultural identities
3. Cultivate ideas for developing a personal growth plan to continue the journey of transformative healing following this presentation
