      Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: Joy DeGruy

      In this talk, Dr. DeGruy presents facts that illustrate how varying levels of both clinically induced and socially learned residual stress related issues were passed along through generations as a result of slavery. The theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome suggests that centuries of slavery followed by systemic racism and oppression have resulted in multigenerational adaptive behaviors—some of which have been positive and reflective of resilience and others that are detrimental and destructive. Dr. Joy DeGruy is a nationally and internationally renowned researcher, educator, author, and presenter. She is a tell-it-like-it-is ambassador for healing and a voice for those who’ve struggled in search of the past and continue to struggle through the present.
