Session 134: The Impact of Racial Trauma

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

Today we’re joined by Licensed Psychologist Dr. Candice Nicole Hargons for a discussion about the work she has done and continues to do to arm Black people with incredible resources to work through racial trauma, how we can advocate for ourselves and how that might look differently for each of us, and she offered tips for dealing with racism at work and school.
