Product Description

This book is about trauma-informed counseling with racially traumatized African (Black), Latino/a/x, Asian, and Native (Indigenous) Americans (ALANAs). ALANAs face the difficulties of systemic racism and experiences of trauma. Any attempt by trauma-informed professionals to help or heal must consider the intersection of race and trauma. Counselors working with race and trauma must use a trauma-informed blueprint to address trauma issues. Comprehending the components and intersectionality of trauma and race is critical to healing and strengthening hurting people, particularly ALANAs. The book explores the matters of race and trauma through discussions of sociological issues; the intersectionality of race, gender, and class; and benign neglect of ALANAs.

This book makes an important contribution to the conversation on race and trauma because its purpose is to equip healers with the tools necessary to assist individuals, families, groups, and communities to heal from abuse, discrimination, and maltreatment.

Editorial Reviews

The question "What do we do?" when facing the historical problem of racism is complex. It's even more complex to answer that question as a member of the demographics targeted by racism. Responses to the question are often trite and lack the content adequate to the problem. In contrast, Professor Micah L. McCreary offers a robust, trauma-informed analysis of racism's impact on African (Black), Latino/a/x, Native (Indigenous), and Asian Americans that addresses complexity and proves adequate to the problem. This book is sure to become a classic text in its field. --Reggie L. Williams, McCormick Theological Seminary

Drawing on years of clinical practice, Trauma and Race answers the question of how to provide trauma-informed counseling that attends to the role of interlocking systems of oppression in racial trauma. McCreary deftly explores both theory and practice to offer creative therapeutic techniques that incorporate attention to psychological, social, and spiritual perspectives. This book is a necessary companion for therapists, counselors, chaplains, and pastoral caregivers--all of whom seek to provide healing at the intersection of race and trauma. --Leah Thomas, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary
