Today I’m excited to have back, Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis. I first interviewed Thema back on episode 52 (http://www.thetraumatherapistproject.com/podcast/thema-bryant-davis-phd/) of the podcast. Thema is one of those rare individuals who is pretty much capable of doing everything: She’s a psychologist, an artist, and an ordained minister, a dynamic speaker and as you’ll hear from this interview, she’s inspiring and empowering. In this episode, Thema shares her knowledge and expertise on the subject of racial trauma, a topic I have yet to cover on this podcast. Thema is an Associate Professor of psychology at Pepperdine University. She is director of the Culture and Trauma Research Lab (http://gsep.pepperdine.edu/psychology/research-training/culture-and-trauma-research/) and associate editor of the journal Psychological Trauma (http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/tra/). She is the author of the book Thriving in the wake of trauma: a multicultural guide (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0759111715/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0759111715&linkCode=as2&tag=wescoatrapro-20&linkId=BEFRV4DZDZA6PMDF) and editor of the book Surviving Sexual Violence (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1442206403/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1442206403&linkCode=as2&tag=wescoatrapro-20&linkId=OW36KVOOI24SDVSX). Thema is a past psychology representative to the UN and a past president of the Society for the Psychology of Women (http://www.apa.org/about/division/div35.aspx). She is a researcher, clinician, advocate, and survivor.
