Trauma Recovery for Trans* and Non-Binary People of Color

Friday, June 19, 2020 at 11:10 AM–12:30 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
2 - Salon C
Workshop Description

The cumulative effects of walking through the world as trans* or non-binary, when coupled with the reality of structural and interpersonal racism, can take a heavy toll on trans* and non-binary people of color. Currently, there are few models that offer strategies for coping with these intersecting identities. This workshop, led by a trauma psychologist who identifies as a trans-masculine, non-binary Pilipinx person, will focus on ways of thinking about multiple forms of trauma, strategies for recovery, and a self-care model for queer and trans* people of color (Miller & Estrellado, 2019). The workshop may be of particular interest to trans* and non-binary people of color, as well as to service providers and family members of trans* and non-binary people of color.
