Monthly Study Group: My Grandmother's Hands (Resmaa Menakem)


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Did you know CCIH offers a monthly study group with optional CEU's? On the fourth Thursday of every month, Chicago therapists meet at our Center for a reading and discussion group which focuses on current research and theory in trauma and attachment, and its application to clinical practice. We study and discuss many of the prominent thinkers in this field including Bessel van der Kolk, Pat Ogden and David Wallin. Our discussion will explore the readings themselves and clinical applications. Bring your lunch, and come participate in this stimulating conversation!

This month, we are discussing "My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies" by Resmaa Menakem, MSW, LICSW, SEP. Menakem lays out a "step-by-step healing process based on the latest neuroscience and somatic healing methods" to help us "recognize that racism is not only about the head, but also about the body."

$10 per sesison for 1.5 CEU's, or free without CEU's
