Racial trauma is experienced both personally and professionally for people of color, making wellness an important, yet challenging part of our lives. People of color employed at health centers experience microaggressions and implicit biases daily, leading to traumatic stress, feelings of hurt, and a sense of loneliness even while working in a crowded and busy environment.
The National Health Care for the Homeless Council recognizes the need to provide a safe space for providers of color to promote healing and has planned a three-part series focused on Pathways to Peace. This series is complementary and builds upon previous sessions and so it is encouraged, but not necessary, to attend all sessions.
The three-part series is as follows:
- BIPOC Wellness Part One: Pathways to Peace-An Introduction to Workplace (and Other) Wellness Concepts (September 23, 2022)
- BIPOC Wellness Part Two: Not a Monolith-Identifying the Power Within (February 2023)
- BIPOC Wellness Part Three: Building a Better Future- Bringing the Collective Together (May 2023)
Join us for the first 90-minute interactive discussion focused on personal self-care. During this time, participants will have an opportunity to share their experiences, and receive tools to support wellness and help build supportive networks.
**This special training is intended for individuals who identify as being a part of the BIPOC community.
