Title: Racial Battle Fatigue: Explorations and Challenges
As providers, we are concerned for the health and well-being of those who trust us to care for them. Some of our clients have been subjected to racial and social trauma that requires a special kind of space in which they can begin to heal and work through. We know that the impact of racism, discrimination, and social oppression is traumatic and affects clients mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually – consider racial battle fatigue (RBF). How do we ensure that our “care” and “help” do not add to the trauma? How can we practice from an anti-oppressive position? This session examines the clinical space that is offered to clients who have experienced racial and social trauma; and offers some useful ways to build a privileged space for clients to work towards better health and wellbeing.
