Intersectionality has been a buzzword in the mental health arena for some time, but what does it really mean - and how does it affect the treatment of trauma? Please join this panel of international experts as we discuss timely issues such as racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism and how these factors influence the trauma recovery process, particularly when multiplied. We will explore how a multiply-marginalized person will experience the world around them, leading to trauma experiences significantly different from trauma survivors of the more dominant cultural groups. Dr. Debra Kaysen will moderate this can't-miss panel.
