Pre-Convention Workshop #8: Exploring Post-Traumatic Master’s Syndrome: Dismantling Whiteness and Moving to Action

This workshop aims to investigate the ways Whiteness as trauma disrupts the work of even the most well-meaning White folks as they strive for racial justice. There is a cost to Whiteness as we know, but that cost is often framed in moral or ethical terms alone. This session explores and then acts on another area of “cost” – the impacts on the body of witnessing, participating in, and/or ignoring the dynamics of racial oppression propagated in our name.
