Defining Racial Trauma and Radical Self Care as a Treatment Intervention

Marin County Psychological Association Presents:

Natalye Pearson PsyD.

Defining Racial Trauma and Radical Self Care as a Treatment Intervention

This is an overview of racial trauma in Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC), its presentation in the clinical hour and radical self-care as a treatment intervention. Racial trauma symptoms are discussed and related to PTSD criteria as defined by the Diagnostic Standard Manual. Contributing factors to racial trauma will be described in several different settings, including; education, predominantly White institutions, and relationships. We will also discuss radical self-care as an intervention and various ways it can be applied to assist BIPOC clients in developing a healthier sense of self and improve their quality of life.


Dr. Natalye Pearson, PsyD. is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area. Dr. Pearson specializes in treating racial trauma, internalized oppression and racial identity development. Within these specialties, she has an emphasis on working within historically marginalized communities (African American, Latine, LGBQTI, people living HIV/AIDS, sexually exploited youth, communities impacted by community violence and poverty). Additionally, Dr. Pearson works in the community to provide psychoeducation workshops and trainings on racism-related trauma and radical self-care. A particular area of training and expertise of Dr. Pearson’s is facilitating groups and public speaking.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Define and identify at least 3 racial trauma symptoms and how they present in BIPOC clients 
  2. Develop an awareness of how racial trauma impacts BIPOC lives in two domains; relationally and sense of self.
  3. Apply three radical self-care interventions to address and reduce racial trauma symptoms
