The intersections of intergenerational and urban trauma are among the most misdiagnosed or undiagnosed forms of trauma, and many are not fully aware of how it impacts their lives. Instructor Daryl McGraw shares his lived experience and research from the Adverse Childhood Experiences study to explore the complex intersections of intergenerational trauma, racism, and criminal justice involvement. This workshop will include live viewing of a presentation, (originally part of the CARE TA Center virtual conference in June 2021) and facilitated discussion focused on applying insights from the presentation to your daily work. Action planning will focus on implementing strategies that acknowledge and address the impact of intergenerational and urban trauma and improve access to crisis services.
