How can we chase justice while seeking wholeness? How can we find healing for both collective trauma and the personal toll of speaking truth to power? Why is it important for the work of justice to be supported by mental health?
Evil doesn’t stop, but we must. We’ve been going for two years without stopping. We’ve faced family loss, gaslighting at our jobs, graduating online, and so much pain. We often feel overwhelmed by the injustice of the world and we just can’t seem to find a convenient time to consider the toll the last years have taken on our mental health. BIPOC communities in particular carry so much personal, communal, generational, and second hand trauma but have not seen professional help as an option towards wholeness.
This winter’s Justice Masterclass series will help us to consider why we must find time to journey with people who are skilled in healing to support the work of justice. Learn from the wisdom of therapists of color as they speak from both their expertise and personal experience.
Our faculty will include Dr. Peace Amadi, Psy D, author of Why Do I Feel Like This?; and Wendell Moss, LMHC, Licensed Therapist and staff at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology’s Allender Center.
Register below for this online event on Thursday February 24th, 7pm CDT.
