Race-based stress and trauma is a global phenomenon, perpetuated by white supremacist systems. Being that the field of psychology was conceived within a system of global white supremacy, how can we consciously help our clients struggling with racial trauma? In this groundbreaking 4-part treatment series, Dr. Broderick Sawyer suggests an integrative, empowering approach to treating race-based stress and trauma in the context of Western psychotherapy.

Beginning with mindfulness in the first module, Dr. Sawyer explores empowerment as a function of self-awareness and value-based exploration. In the second module, he then outlines the value of self-compassion in the context of ongoing racial oppression. In the third module, he discusses the importance of monitoring therapist countertransference when treating racial trauma, as a means of not perpetuating white supremacist values. Lastly, he reviews a case example of a past client, outlining what effective treatment for racial trauma looks like from intake to discharge.

  • Culturally-specific augmentations for using self-compassion in the context of racial trauma.
  • In and out of session techniques to increase self-compassion in clients.
