Welcome to Race Reflections’ first online course: An Introduction to Racial Trauma!


This course is the first of its kind in the UK. It aims to equip learners with a solid understanding of racial trauma. This is a four-to-five part thorough, emotionally challenging and reflexive course. It will equip learners with the theoretical and empirical underpinning of racial trauma, as well as providing strategies and clinical tools to support those struggling with racism-related distress.


  • Grasp various conceptualisations of racial trauma
  • Explore the lived experience of racial trauma
  • Understand strategies to buffer the impact of racism on targets
  • Take a positioned, embodied approach to self-reflectivity
  • Grasp and practice some self-care tools


Each PART is expected to take 3-5 hours to complete on average.

Learners will have three months to complete the course. The course is suitable for all helping professionals, teachers, medical staff, managers and others with an interest in psychology, mental health, social justice AND anti-racism.

The course comprises reading material, guided study, relevant videos and references. Learners may also join an online forum to connect with other learners taking the course. The forum will be available 14 days after the course content becomes available. PowerPoint presentations are being finalised and will be available to download and retain after completion of the course.*


The course is priced at £399 for non-members and £199 for Race Reflections members.
