The Role of Intersectionality and Intergenerational Trauma on the Culture of Nondisclosure Date & Time 10/19/2022 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM Categories Upcoming Event True Location Zoom Certification Hours 3 Description Engaging the Road Less Traveled: Exploring the Role of Intersectionality and Intergenerational Trauma on the Culture of Nondisclosure Each of our stories are unique because of our intersecting identities and social positions, which afford us different levels of status, power, and access to resources in different settings. Maureen Walker reminds us that when trying to connect with someone or understand another’s behavior, we must never remove the person from their context. Like a prism frees a rainbow, Intersectionality is a lens that help us see the various interconnections in social categories to explore intricate explanations for all of our actions (Crenshaw, 1989). Together let’s explore our own intersectional identities and how they impact us in multifaceted ways. Then we will explore different groups’ experiences of society, norms, and expectations as they relate to historical and intergenerational trauma’s influence in creating a culture of nondisclosure. Finally, Intersectionality will help us glimpse the complexity of the challenges we face, so we can begin to see the ingenuity of survival skills and the hidden resilience within them needed to move beyond the culture of nondisclosure.
