Event description
Assessing & conceptualizing intergenerational trauma in clients through antiracist clinical and supervisory lenses. NBCC Clock Hrs: 6

About this event

Utilizing didactics, case studies, and experiential exercises, this workshop will provide clarity on intergenerational and historical trauma, its development within families and communities, and how these can present in the clinical and supervision rooms. The relationship between epigenetics and intergenerational trauma and resilience will be covered as part of clarifying clinical conceptualization and treatment of race-based stress and trauma. Considerations for working with supervisees will be reviewed. The development of antiracist clinical and supervisory lenses needed for doing this work will be discussed within the context of the Cross-Cultural Civility-Mindset Developmental Model developed by Dr. Sonja Sutherland. Instruments for the assessment of micro-aggressive related trauma for clarifying racial trauma presentation will also be introduced.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will describe the differences between intergenerational trauma and historical trauma.
  2. Participants will discuss the development of antiracist clinical and supervisory lenses through the primary tenants of the Cross-Cultural Civility Mindset Development Model.
  3. Participants will review two instruments that can be used for assessing the impact of microaggressions and race-based trauma in clients.
  4. Participants will identify 3 ways both racial and intergenerational trauma can present in clients and in supervisees.
  5. Participants will describe the role of epigenetics in the presentation of intergenerational trauma and the development of intergenerational resilience.
  6. Participants will apply an understanding of the Cross-Cultural Civility Mindset approach to working with intergenerational trauma through clinical and supervisory case examples.
