Title: Courageous Conversations, Pt. 2: From Trauma to Healing: Finding Common Ground
Presented by: Gretta Gardner, Tom Tremblay, Carolyn West
This facilitated conversation, building on the discussion begun in “Courageous Conversations, Pt. 1 - Improving Our Response to the Black Community,” will explore the parallels between how trauma shows up in the culture of policing and Black lived experiences. The presenters will discuss the nuances of compound, complex trauma and create common ground on how trauma impacts help seeking, service provision, and resiliency/pathways to healing for both law enforcement and Black survivors. Attendees will be encouraged to actively participate in the discussion and brainstorm with each other to answer the question, “How can we use this information to better our response to survivors in the Black community?”
