The theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome suggests that centuries of chattel slavery, followed by systemic racism and oppression, have resulted in multigenerational adaptive behaviors in those of African descent. Some of these behaviors have been positive and reflective of resiliency, but others have been detrimental and destructive. Dr. Joy DeGruy (bio) will discuss her 12 years of research to develop this theory that illustrates how varying levels of both clinically induced and socially learned stress related issues were passed along through generations as a result of slavery and ongoing anti-blackness.

This webinar will combine two popular lectures by Dr. DeGruy, with a morning session on the theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome and an afternoon session on Cultural-Specific Models of Service, Delivery, and Practice. Active chat and Q&A boxes will be used to promote engagement, and each part will include a moderated Q&A drawing from the questions submitted during the lecture. See the registration page for all event information including discounts, how to access the webinar, and CE requirements.
