As clinicians we may struggle to understand the part that history plays for our clients. This workshop with Dr Aileen Aleyne is an opportunity to explore how history still plays a part in creating ongoing challenges for our cultural, social and racial identity. Our history is deeply embedded in the unconscious and understanding this can help facilitate our understanding of the struggles of daily life that our clients are facing. The workshop will provide a space to increase and strengthen our cross-cultural competence in clinical practice.
The workshop with aims to:
- identify and work with untreated trauma passed on to second and subsequent generations
- work more competently with dynamics of intergenerational trauma, particularly in the black/white context
