Dr Hardy To Present On Racial Trauma Dynamics

February 14, 2017

Dr. Kenneth Hardy will be visiting the island from February 19-23, at the request of Family Centre to “provide training to social service providers on the dynamics of racial trauma and also to provide an interactive session with the public on the same topic.”

“The public will have the opportunity to spend an evening with Dr. Hardy on February 22nd as he provides an in-depth comprehensive analysis of the dynamics of racial trauma and how the life experiences of many youth of color are organized by it. He will explore and outline hidden trauma wounds and how they limit the life experience and choices of many youth of color,” the Family Center said.

“Dr. Kenneth V. Hardy, PhD, is a Professor of Family Therapy at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the Director of the Eikenberg Institute for Relationships in New York City. He is an internationally recognized clinician, author, educator, and consultant.

“An engaging workshop leader, Dr. Hardy presents workshops nationally and internationally on family therapy for oppressed and racially traumatized populations. Dr. Hardy’s work with children and families has earned him considerable public acclaim, including appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC‘s 20/20, Dateline NBC, and Public Broadcasting Service [PBS].

Family Centre Executive Director, Martha Dismont, said, We are very fortunate to be given this opportunity through supportive funding to bring Dr. Hardy to the island.

“His work, and workshops on understanding unaddressed trauma, particularly in people of color, should enlighten the public, and help to ‘ground’ the work of clinicians on the island”.

The public event will take place on Wednesday February 22th at the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity Church Hall on Church Street in Hamilton from 6:30 – 8:00pm.

Please RSVP by February 17th to Stephanie@tfc.prevention, and for more information contact Dr. Stephanie Guthman at the Family Centre at 232-1116 ext: 2025. Light refreshments will be served.
