Anger, Sadness, and the In-Between: Exploring Trauma Reactions as a Means to Reframe Narratives about Black Women Survivors
Virtual presentation by Ujima: The National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community through the Domestic Violence Network's Equity Workshop Series
September 13th, 2022 from 1:00pm - 3:00 p.m.
This workshop will explore the many varied and legitimate trauma reactions that survivors may experience and the ways in which advocates can better identify trauma reactions and provide support to survivors. By delving into the dynamics of polyvictimization, secondary trauma, and trauma-informed care, advocates will gain a fuller understanding of not only why survivors “do what they do” but also how and when secondary trauma impacts advocates.
