This presentation will provide a framework for understanding Collective Trauma as a reoccurring phenomenon throughout our history through to present day COVID. Although we often think of Collective Trauma as an event, in reality, Collective Trauma has shaped our society, and has systemically impacted the LGTBQ2 community, women, Indigenous people, racialized groups and persons with disabilities for generations. Collective Trauma has been a catalyst for change as well as a sobering reminder of our vulnerability and strength during trying times.

Participants will:

- Learn how to reframe Collective Trauma from a historical context.
- Develop an understanding of the Impact of Collective Trauma.
- Learn about supportive strategies to build resilience and thrive.
