A Thousand Paper Cuts

The emergence of neuroscience-based trauma models has underscored the importance of recognizing and addressing the embodied imprint of trauma in our lives. Increasingly, these models have broadened their scope from single incident acute trauma to the more nuanced dimensions of complex developmental and relational trauma. Those of us who identify as (or work with) members of marginalized groups may not connect the symptoms of trauma with our (or our clients’) social experiences. In this talk we will explore how sexism, racism, ablism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression should rightly be understood as traumatic, and how to recognize the somatic impact of micro-aggressions – one of the most subtle yet damaging forms of oppression. Tools and strategies for working with this significant but often overlooked form of trauma will be offered, as well as practical suggestions for supporting social resilience in ourselves and others.
