Trauma in the Urban Community: Exploring the Wider Context



There’s nothing “post” about the PTSD many people living in impoverished, urban communities experience daily. But effective interventions for these clients requires a commitment to understanding the complexities of their experience and identifying the traumas, both hidden and visible, rooted in a lack of basic necessities and jobs, unhealthy family relationships, drug addiction, unfair policing practices, and ongoing violence. This recording explores trauma through the lens of epigenetics and generational trauma as well as physical health in the light of the ACEs study. In this session, you’ll explore:

  • The environmental risk factors for PTSD and major depressive disorder within an urban and impoverished population
  • How to widen the trauma-informed care lens by identifying family-centred specific interventions 
  • The correlation between trauma in the urban environment and the rise in suicide rates of African American children
