The Impact of Trauma on Marginalized Bodies

Working with marginalized and traumatized populations in your practice can be challenging. Learn how to develop the skills needed to be more effective in treatment, avoid burnout and achieve positive outcomes through developing an integrative lens to more effectively treat trauma and somatic healing.

Dr. Webb will give you the training you need through case stories, neuroscience research, and experiential activities. Learn to work together with community support systems to increase compassion through seeing the function of behaviors through the lens of trauma, reestablish structure, and create a validating environment.

Leave with the knowledge and skills to confidently teach how to implement a safe structure that decreases hypersensitivity to racism, sexism, etc on both sides of the therapeutic space.


  • Examine the impact of stress and trauma on the developing mind
  • Identify the key defensive survival strategies in intergenerational trauma
  • Discuss how to establish a safe therapeutic environment that reestablishes healthy boundaries, connected communication and validates a client’s survival journey
