Healthy Communities Task Force Racial Equity Workshop #1

By Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (other events)

2 Dates Through Feb 26, 2019

Historically, people from underrepresented groups have encountered ongoing experiences of oppression throughout their lifetimes.  These experiences have impacted their mental health and the social conditions in which they live. Workshop #1: The Impact of Racism and Trauma and Learning How to Work with People Who Have Been Traumatized has three major objectives:

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of the historical and political underpinnings of racism and classism and how these ideals continue to impact communities today;
  2. The facilitator will introduce the concept of racial trauma and explore the impact of racial trauma on individuals and communities in which we work; and
  3. Participants will be given strategies to learn how to effectively communicate with those who have been traumatized.

The facilitator will use case examples, small group discussions, and role-plays to engage participants throughout the workshop.  The overarching goal will be to provide a historical context to facilitate understanding and inform effective communication and interactions.  Please see the agenda for additional detials.

Workshop #1 will be offered on both Wednesday, January 30th and Tuesday, February 26h from 9:00am to 12:30pm at DVRPC.  The workshops will be facilitated by Dr. Jade Logan, Ph.D., ABPP, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Chestnut Hill College and counselor with The Ladipo Group.
