The Cultural Burden of White Supremacy Culture & The Path Toward Collective Healing

Embark on a day of transformative learning

 Grounded in the Internal Family Systems framework, this session explores Legacy Burdens—emotional weights transmitted across generations due to unresolved family, societal, and historical traumas.

Delving into the global cultural burdens of White Supremacy Culture, discussions will cover racial trauma, intersectionality, societal power dynamics, and the delicate balance between shame and self-compassion.

What you'll experience

Internal Family Systems (IFS) describes Legacy Burdens as an emotional or psychological weight that is passed down through generations. These include unresolved family, societal, systemic or historical traumas, and negative beliefs/behavior patterns passed from previous generations that impact an individual’s capacity to truly remain present in the moment.

Legacy Burdens can manifest in various ways and at various levels including personal, relational, communal and cultural. The global cultural burdens of White Supremacy Culture has resulted in mass generational dehumanization and widespread psychospiritual demoralization.

In this workshop, we will discuss: racial trauma, epigenetics/intergenerational impact, intersectionality, patterns of societal power dynamics, the role of shame vs self compassion, and evidenced based trauma informed interventions.

The key learning concepts of this training aim to foster awareness, critical thinking and the development of skills to transform legacy burdens to legacy gifts.

Learning objectives

  1. Understand and articulate how all forms of systemic oppression result in cultural/collective burdens and intergenerational trauma.
  2. Analyze the systemic and institutional context of White Supremacy Culture, especially as it relates to health and wellness.
  3. Increase ability to recognize historical traumas and the lingering negative belief/behavior patterns that are passed down and around.
  4. Explore intersectionality as a framework to acknowledge the compounding effects of race, class and gender.
  5. Identify patterns of societal power dynamics that influence cross cultural interactions and the relational process of rupture/repair.
  6. Define commonly used terms such as diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging. privilege, and accountability.
  7. Reflect on personal biases, blind spots, and barriers to becoming a more accepting and inclusive therapist/clinician.
  8. Examine the psychological consequences of systemic oppression for those who hold the privilege of being “white-presenting” and the marginalized global majority.
  9. Recognize coping mechanisms individuals and communities employ in response to racial trauma
  10. Develop effective strategies for repairing ruptures, emphasizing the importance of embracing conflict, uncertainty, and vulnerability to strengthen personal and professional relationships.
