General Session 101: Liberatory Trauma Responsive Intersectional Self Care for Humans/Therapists

Thursday, April 18th

Intermediate, Introductory

About the Session

This keynote address will develop a model of a liberatory, intersectional, trauma-informed practice of care for the therapist’s self. Explore the corporatization of this construct and ways in which therapists can take it back from those who have turned it into a cliche and transform self-care into an integral component of our work as trauma healers.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to identify differences between corporatized models of self-care and those emerging from a liberatory model of trauma healing.
  2. Participants will be able to identify personal obstacles to self-care arising from internalized and systemic external structures of oppression.
  3. Participants will be able to identify self-care strategies that are culturally responsive for the therapist, and that take the therapist’s own trauma exposure heritage, including intergenerational trauma, into account.
