The CSP BAME Network Trauma Talk with Andrea Wright

Tuesday 19 October 2021

‘Black History’ as living in the present. Acknowledging our trauma, celebrating our stories, visioning our tomorrow, with Andrea Wright.

 

In honour of Black History Month, we acknowledge that celebrating the history and legacy of Black People doesn’t start or stop in the 31 days of October. Neither does our collective and intergenerational trauma as racialised communities of black and brown people cease to persist as we navigate a system of racism and discrimination across all domains of societal life.

With this in mind; how might we understand the impact of these experiences in a way that not only speaks to the harm, but might provide a pathway to new insights, growth and self-compassion? Where do we find sites of resourcing and energy to experience embodied joy? What role does creativity and community have in restoring our wellbeing?

This session will not be recorded in the hope that it is safe ‘enough’ for us to be ourselves. This is an opportunity to open our imaginations, be curious and playful about what we might experience, create and envision together for ourselves and our network.

Aim

To explore ways that acknowledge our stories of trauma whilst honouring our capacity to access joy and resource through creativity and experiential dialogue individually and collectively.

Outcomes

• Will be able to recognise what settles and resources their body

• Be able to access embodied tools to support more effective nervous system regulation

• Feel greater capacity to build connections within the network
