Urban Trauma

Wednesday, November 14, 2018


In light of our political climate and the psychological impact to culturally and religiously diverse communities, the presentation will raise your level of awareness and understanding of the role of Urban Trauma. Dr. Akbar makes the case that since the time of slavery, systemic trauma in our urban centers is a result of poverty, overcrowded housing, poor physical and mental health, despair, violence, crime and drug abuse. Join Dr. Akbar as she illustrates that Urban Trauma is real, but by denying its existence we deny our communities of color the chance to heal and break the cycle.
