The Neurophysiology of Racialized Trauma

The Neurophysiology of Racialized Trauma

Description

Racialization is experienced as traumatic for Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC). This webinar evaluates race and racialization through an intergenerational and historical lens to consider the impacts on mental, physical, and emotional health of racism on BIPOC. We cover the implications of racism on epigenetics, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and lived experience of racism. We also examine the construction of whiteness within a historical framing, and how the myth of white body supremacy has shaped institutions including medicine. Finally, we explore how the principles of naturopathic medicine and our healing modalities, which have their roots in Indigenous healing practices, can lend aid in healing racialized trauma for BIPOC patients and providers, and can support white bodied individuals with increasing their capacity to sit with the discomfort inherent to engaging anti-racism.

Instructor

Dr. Diana Quinn Inlak'ech (she/her/hers) is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor specializing in integrative mental health and somatic bodywork. She is a graduate of the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon and has been in practice since 2005. Her practice is trauma-informed with a anti-oppression, healing justice lens grounded in intersectional feminism. She provides safer space to those who have been marginalized in medical industrial complex spaces including the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, Black, Indigenous and people of color, trauma survivors, differently abled folks, and people of size (as a HAES advocate). She is a core collaborator with HealingbyChoice!, a community of women of color and gender nonconforming healing practitioners who offer a range of healing modalities for self-care and the reduction of racial harm in mind, body, spirit, and institution. She also provides 1-1 care and training for practitioners with TRACC (trauma and crisis care) for Movements.
