This presentation introduces the concept of vicarious resilience in the trauma field to assist trauma therapists and clinical supervisors in their work populations affected by traumatic stress.  In addition, it examines the social and cultural dimensions of working with those affected by trauma and their mental health providers. Intersections of diversity (class, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability) dimensions are explored in clinical practice to offer clinicians a cultural equity framework for practice.

Date:  December 2, 2010
Time: 7-9pm
Location: Smith Hall, Albany Quadrangle, Lewis & Clark
