Historical Trauma Objective: Conduct research that is responsive to needs of and engages with underserved communities. Theme: Core Functions
Learn about the historical trauma suffered by community groups. Know about unethical research conducted with state and national and international groups. Build/rebuild trust with communities. Be aware that universities/ hospitals/governments have been responsible for unethical research and experimentation with underrepresented groups so relationships may need rebuilding. Learning about trauma experienced can be very difficult, traumatizing, or re-traumatizing. Build self-care and safe spaces into these learning opportunities.
