Urban Trauma: The Professionals Workbook

Included with your online training will be the official workbook of the Urban Trauma® framework specifically developed for professionals. This workbook allows for professionals to have a guide when working with individuals who are exposed or have experienced traumatic events, especially related to racalized trauma. Professionals do not require experience or education in mental health, yet, only those who are Urban Trauma® certified will have access to the workbook. Tools included in the workbook are: professional and client focused assessments, trauma-informed interviews, decision matrices, and 6-weeks of interactive activities designed to work through the characteristics of urban trauma. This is an essential resource for anyone working with clients and communities of color and an invaluable asset to any professional library of educational materials.

Urban Trauma: The Workbook for Self-Healing

This official self-healing workbook has been created for people of color who are looking to restore themselves from the effects of urban trauma.

The self-healing workbook provides context for racial trauma (how it came to be), includes assessments which will support in the identification of race-based trauma, and engages you in guided activities focused on addressing the six urban trauma characteristics. This is an essential tool for anyone who is seeking to overcome generational and inherited trauma, marking an important step toward a path of healing. The goal is ultimate liberation which moves you from merely surviving in the direction of thriving.
