Surviving White Coat Trauma and Racism

Surviving White Coat Trauma and Racism


During the “Surviving White coat trauma and racism” group we explore topics which deeply impact black Physicians. During the first 45 minutes, we discuss a topic of impact to us and to our patients. Topics discussed have been colorism, assimilation, gender and racism, community fractures and many others, all with a view to understanding how we as individuals and as a community have been injured and are healing. One of the biggest areas of stress is what I call the “Am I crazy?” syndrome. We hold a shared experience of invalidation, when we report or even discuss racist and misogynistic acts. Therefore the second half of the group presents an opportunity for those present to unburden, about their own injury in a safe and validating space. We do this using a modified Balint group format, which allows us to really focus on bringing healing to our colleagues.
