This session will help participants…

  1. identify the oppressive forces still operating within our educational systems, and
  2. identify ways to engage and interact with students, families, colleagues (and the self) experiencing and living with these wounds.
  3. name and describe the various wounds of colonial and racial trauma,


This lecture will focus on introducing participants to various wounds related to colonial and racial trauma—often invisible to many of us.
