Description of Event: 
After a brief overview of racial, gender, and body liberation, participants will learn how those in 
intersectionality marginalized bodies might internalize external shame messages of being "too much" or "not enough.” The training will demonstrate how self-compassion can both build shame resilience and offer space to 'hold the hard.’ A model of radical healing (French et al., 2019) will build on theories of liberation to help honor lived experiences of navigating oppressive systems, while also identifying and exploring sources of pleasure and joy.

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to identify 2+ examples of shame messages that show up for someone experiencing marginalization.

2. Participants will be able to define what is meant by liberation and why there is no ‘endpoint’ to that work.
3. Participants will be able to identify at least 1 intervention that might be applied from the tenants of radical healing (collectivism; critical consciousness; radical hope; strength and resistance; & cultural authenticity and self-knowledge)
4. Participants will be able to identify at least 2 of the 3 components of self-compassion practice as outlined in Kristen Neff's research.
5. Participants will be able to list 2-3 possible strategies for ‘intentional self-preservation’ as the third described component of Self-Compassion practice.
6. Participants will be able to describe 1+ example of how a shame trigger might feed into one or more of the features of white supremacy.
7. Participants will be able to provide 1+ examples of what it might look like for someone to embody the values of a) racial liberation, b) gender liberation, & c) body liberation.

addyson tucker, PsyD (they/them) is a genderqueer, nonbinary, and inclusive therapist who supports trans and nonbinary adults, as well as trans-affirming providers. As a clinician, addyson specializes in working with identity affirmation, trauma-informed care, and radical healing through self-compassion and shame resilience. They have done extensive training in mindful self-compassion, trauma-informed shame resilience, and various topics related to gender, body, and racial liberation with a specialty in gender-affirming care. 

Learning and applying the skills of self-compassion for shame resilience improves the ability to sit with difficult experiences, despite that instinctive urge to fix. It also helps create space for a provider to expand their client's capacity and willingness to lean into difficult feelings and experiences. This work also has a cumulative impact in broadening the ways in which the service fields think about healing for those with daily experiences navigating systemic oppression, marginalization, and micro-invalidations that become internalized.
