Do You Really See Me:

Understanding Trauma in African American Women

The rate at which African American women are experiencing trauma and navigating symptoms consistent with PTSD is alarming. Research shows that a number of factors contribute to health disparities among this group. However, there are several coping skills and interventions that increase resilience and serve as mediating factors for mental health symptoms.

 

This training will offer participants an opportunity to review, discuss, and analyze trauma risk factors for African American women. It will also present information about specific culture-affirming coping strategies and therapeutic interventions, communication barriers, and therapeutic pitfalls to avoid when working with this highly specialized group.

 

Workshop Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Prerequisites: None

Learning Objectives

  • Review risk factors for trauma in African American women.

  • Define terms associated with cultural competence.

  • Discuss cases that review trauma in African American women.

  • Apply culture-affirming coping strategies and therapeutic interventions to case studies.
