Treating Persistent Traumatic Slave Syndrome
Use of the Gottman Method with African Americans Impacted by Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome will help to inform the thought process and work of clinicians with couples who have been deeply impacted by slavery, discrimination, and systemic racism that has existed in the United States for the past 400 years. Without the knowledge of these “veiled shackles” that often prevent couples from thriving in their relationship, clinicians may provide inadequate treatment. Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome is the critical work of Dr. Joy DeGruy based on over 30 years of research. Tools taught through the Gottman Method are known to be helpful with individuals who have experienced trauma, and this webinar will take a deeper dive into issues specific to African American couples and will offer insights to work through those issues.
