Sunday Morning Keynote

How Therapy Can Help Societal Trauma

From early in his storied career in the therapy world, Ken Hardy has confronted ignorance of the BIPOC experience and maintained a decades-long, unwavering focus on training and challenging practitioners on issues of oppression, diversity, whiteness, and trauma. His voice has attracted consistent media attention, and his many appearances include TheOprah Winfrey Show, Dateline NBC, and 20/20. As much an activist and bridge-builder as a practitioner and healer, he continues to shape our pivotal dialogues as president of the Eikenberg Academy for Social Justice and director of its Institute for Relationships in New York City. His latest book, The Enduring, Invisible, and Ubiquitous Centrality of Whiteness, is being called “the book we’ve been needing to cultivate a society where multiple ideologies can coexist without domination, marginalization, or indoctrination.” In this keynote, he’ll explore what it means to not only be trauma-informed, but race-informed as we tackle the new complexities of working with the growing range of societal turmoil that shows up in the therapy room.

Sought-after therapist and author Ken Hardy will explore what it means to not only be trauma-informed, but race-informed as we work with the growing range of societal turmoil that shows up in the therapy room.
