TRAUMA

In light of recent acts of violence and the viral internet age we live in today where violent imagery is permeating all of our lives, I found this article on “Self Care for People of Color After Psychological Trauma” by Jasmine Banks Brown to be profound and a necessary read for enhancing cultural competency especially pertaining to trauma.
