According to the Trauma Healing Institute, Trauma is "a deep wound of the heart and mind that takes a long time to heal. It hurts every part of us: our relationships, our bodies, our thoughts, and our faith." They add that "some experiences in life are so painful, they cause deep and lasting suffering. That suffering is what we call 'trauma'.”

Healing the Wounds of Generational Trauma: The Black & White Experience explores generational trauma and how it affects our lives today. Participants look at historical factors that have impacted America and trace our own experience against that background. It helps participants to unlock traumatic patterns that are passed down through the generations, provides tools to begin interrupting those patterns, and sets the foundation for racial healing between White and Black Americans.
