This workshop is a safe space to explore the complexities, psychology and importance of looking at racial and cultural trauma. We will use what has already been uncovered about trauma treatment to build resilience through using various coping skills adapted from Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
- Learn about trauma through a racial and cultural context
- Recognise the affects, behaviours and symptoms of racial and cultural trauma
- Practice skills and exercises used to treat affects of trauma
- Build a small set of skills to continue using when you need to outside the workshop
- Be a part of a collective community within the workshop

About the host:
Kia ora, my name is Tanisha. I identify as a racialized black female of Caribbean and European heritage, born and raised in the UK where I originally trained in Art Psychotherapy. Currently living in New Zealand, I work with a large range of individuals from Maori, Pasifika, African, Middle Eastern and pakeha clients in-person. I also facilitate counselling work online with clients from all over the world, most of whom are in need of a therapist that can offer a safe, creative and comfortable space to explore issues around racial and cultural identity. My clients, along with my own passions and experiences about this subject, are the reason I have decided to create this workshop.
