A Mind-Body Approach to Race-Based Traumatic Stress Recovery



Join Gail Parker, PhD and explore a mind/body approach to stress reduction and trauma recovery from race-based traumatic stress.

Restorative Yoga supports embodied awareness and enhances an overall sense of well-being. It eases stress, aids in trauma recovery, and is an effective adjunct to psychotherapy.

When you lose the ability to recognize it for what it is, abusive and traumatizing, and learn to tolerate the intolerable, the unacknowledged pain does not disappear; it just goes underground and can express itself in ways that zap your vitality and make it difficult to live your best life.

The emotional wounds of race-based trauma land in the body. The resulting pain is not a cognitive experience and recovery cannot occur by talk therapy alone. Sometimes in the face of race-based trauma there are no words to describe the experience, and talking about it can be re-traumatizing.
