Trainer: Kristee Haggins, PhD

Our communities are struggling with the impact of one crisis after another. As a healer how do you carry on? How do you show-up with humility and wisdom? How do you make an impact?
Join us for two half-days of experiential learning focused on crisis intervention skills with an emphasis on providing effective community-centered responses. Rather than a traditional clinical trauma informed care training, this workshop incorporates cultural, ethnic, and racial trauma informed strategies to address the impact of racial stress and trauma and crises on marginalized community members, with a lens focused on the Black experience.
Day 1: Become aware of the cumulative effect of systemic and institutional racism on a person’s overall behavioral health and their community. Recognize the signs and symptoms of racial trauma to gain a deeper understanding of trauma versus other diagnostic considerations. Examine your own role in dismantling racism and by extension contributing to healing in your community.
Day 2: Learn how to apply racially trauma-informed assessment, treatment planning and clinical practice that aims to initiate healing rather than be re-traumatizing, that mitigates the impact of racial stress, and strives for personal and community healing.
Join Dr. Kristee Haggins who is is a community healer, African centered psychologist, professor and consultant with expertise in Black racial stress and trauma. She served as the Associate Director of Training and Community Outreach at Student Health and Counseling Services at UC Davis for nearly 20 years, where she was also an Adjunct Professor in African and African American Studies. She is a previous member of the Health Equity Team at CIBHS where she worked for 5 years. Currently, Dr. Haggins is an Associate Professor in the College of Psychology at California Northstate University. She is also a founding member and the Executive Director of Safe Black Space, a developing non-profit focused on helping Black people heal and thrive in the face of anti-Blackness and racism. In addition, Dr. Haggins is on the Board of Directors for the California Black Health Network and she is the President of the Greater Sacramento Chapter of the Association of Black Psychologists.
