Discussion: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome and Black Healing
Monday, Feb. 6th, 6:30-8:30pm
School of Public Health and Information Sciences (485 E. Gray St) Room 103
Guest facilitator Pam Newman is an organizer for black liberation and a student and mental health advocate. At this discussion participants will explore the theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) which was developed by Dr. Joy DeGruy. PTSS explains how generations of slavery have traumatically affected black individuals and communities and how healing can be promoted and sustained. This discussion is primarily for students, faculty and staff interested and supportive of exploring these subjects. Several copies of Dr. DeGruy’s book will be given away to a few participants at this event! Sponsored by the UofL School of Public Health and Information Sciences, Office of Public Health Practice & Community Outreach, and the Health Sciences Center’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
