This session will help identify and explore the many ways black and brown people have been harmed in both explicit and insidious ways. The harm has resulted in generations of psychological, emotional and physiological turmoil. To help mitigate the hurt done, we will investigate healing practices that social workers can implement to help reduce harm, restore and heal black and brown folks in toxic environments.
