Trauma Has No Color with Dr. Marty K. Casey
Hurting People Hurt People. Trauma, when left untreated—unhealed—eventually manifests itself in continued expressions of trauma. It’s cyclical. And yes, we have experienced not only personal trauma, but cultural and collective trauma. Systemic racism is an expression of very deep, generational and wide, cultural and collective, trauma. What if these wounds of separation are at the core of many of our systemic issues? Would you do your work to heal trauma? Healing systemic racism is for all races, and trauma has no color.
