Event Navigation

It’s time to register for the 2022 virtual African American Conference on Disabilities (AACD) throughout the month of February. This conference is a FREE event!

Session 4:
Thursday, February 3rd – 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm (Phoenix time)

  • Dr. Carlian Dawson, Ed.D, Director of Education, Arizona Center for African American Children (AZCAAR)
  • DaMond Holt, Ph.D., The Trauma Center of Hope

Synopsis:  The workshop is a follow-up to last year’s powerful introduction to the historical and racial trauma workshop given by Carlian Dawson, EdD. She will be joined by DaMond Holt, Ph.D., to discuss how to heal from trauma from an African American male perspective. Dr. Dawson and Dr. Holt will walk through how trauma is introduced, how it impacts the mind and body, and how to heal from its effects.

Trauma has had devastating effects on African American males’ overall health and well-being and yet, they have managed to “make it through”, deal with the day-to-day stresses in spite of the adversities they face, to become productive and successful parts of their communities.

Dr. Holt states, “Trauma may not be your fault, but it is your responsibility to heal from it. If you don’t heal from your trauma, you will bleed on people that didn’t cut you.”
