Racial Trauma: "Racial trauma is one term used to describe the physical and psychological symptoms that people of Color often experience after being exposed to stressful experiences of racism (Carter, 2007)...And, these racism experiences never exist in isolation; racial trauma is a cumulative experience, where every personal or vicarious encounter with racism contributes to a more insidious, chronic stress (Carter, 2007)."
Self-Care: Self-care is the active participation of enhancing your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and quality of life.
