Black and Historical Trauma Healing Project

A promising practice designed to increase individual awareness of trauma and its effects on their body and increase personal and community resilience through the practice of self-care. The BAHTH project uses creative arts as a medium to express negative feelings associated with trauma and evaluate risk and protective factors as a potential path of recovery.
