"When people think of psychological healing, they often think about reducing the emotional pain associated with traumatic events. Conventional healing focuses on individual symptom reduction such as teaching someone how to regulate their emotional responses to racism. Radical healing incorporates strategies that address the root causes of the trauma by building on the strengths of individuals and engaging the general and culture-specific practices of their community that promote resilience and wellbeing."
