Keywords:disassociation, microaggression, racism, bias, re-traumatization, empathy
AbstractThe following is a Keynote given at the 2021 Bioenergetic Pre-Conference in Brazil. It describes how members of an institute or a therapist can precipitate re-traumatizations by not empathically connecting with a person’s description of prejudicial and racial trauma in her history. The process of disassociation is described, as well as a path for empathic understanding.
