“Trauma” is used to refer to the emotional effects of potentially overwhelming events like a natural disaster, institutional violence, longstanding racial wounds, death, severe accidents, or rape. Experiencing a high number of early “adverse childhood experiences” (ACE Score) has been firmly and repeatedly tied to bad health, to shortened lifespan and to barriers to learning.  ACE disproportionally affect BIPOC and the LGBTQ community, and these experiences perpetuate emotional and spiritual trauma.   

Resiliency is the ability to bounce back and recover from stressors, ACE and trauma. Spiritually integrated arts practices are a core intervention on behalf of anti racist resiliency.  CPE Supervision, as a relationship that addresses identity, self awareness and relationship, is ripe for re traumatization and for healing. 

The objectives for this workshop are:  

  • To introduce a modest beginning for thinking about the intersection between trauma, racism, clinical education and arts practices for spiritual care providers.  
  • To explore ways that the arts could be part of clinical education with the lenses of theory and practice from trauma, racism, resilience and expressive arts.  
  • To engage one another about the experience and practice of antiracist resiliency arts based practices in clinical education.
  •    To provide a liminal space for experimentation and new ideas about the edge of the unknown between these fields.
