About the event

If you're experiencing:

👉🏽 Hyper-vigilance and risk aversion that blocks you from self-advocacy and trying new things;

👉🏽 People-pleasing and conflict avoidance to the point where you’re burnt out or repressed;

👉🏽 Anger and defensiveness that keeps others at bay, leaving you isolated and without support;

you’re not being too “sensitive”, “aggressive”, or “weak”. You’re having perfectly normal and AUTOMATED (i.e. uncontrolled) responses to danger: the danger of systemic racism.

In this free #LinkedInLive #FacebookLiveStream honouring the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Lana Jelenjev and Rosie Yeung will share knowledge and resources to support racialized (BIPOC) folks in:

💡 Recognizing our Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) responses to racism

💡 Understanding our learned behaviours and coping strategies for racism

💡 Developing tools and resources to reduce our pain and expand our options in the face of racism

The goal of this webinar is to equip racialized (BIPOC) people with trauma-informed insights to shift from auto-reply to intentional choice when triggered or assaulted, physically or emotionally.
