We're renewing PACEs Connection's popular "Historical Trauma in America" series!

 

Due to its popularity, PACEs Connection's Race & Equity Workgroup is continuing the “Historical Trauma in America Series”. This event examines historical trauma in the United States and its impact on American society in a series of virtual discussions. This series, which began in July 2021, highlights several regions within the United States and outlines how unresolved historical trauma has impacted every aspect of American life and directly shapes the sociopolitical landscape of today as well as the overall well-being of Americans. The purpose of these discussions is to make connections between America's history and the current mental health crisis, social determinants of health and the obvious disparities and inequities present in our communities today.

Our first year of this series attracted nearly 2,000 attendees. This series was so popular, that PACEs Connection featured some of the guests on the podcast, History. Culture. Trauma., to continue the conversation concerning our complicated history. Please join us for our series launch on June 23rd! In that initial session, we will discuss how to heal historical and intergenerational trauma. See the session descriptions and the schedule for the series below:
