Past Event: C+V Community Talks: A Post-Election Community Space

Join us for this Special Edition Community Talk

At this point, to say that 2020 has been challenging feels like an understatement. We recognize that people feel exhausted, and now comes another incredibly emotional event: the 2020 election. Whether folks are nervous, anxious, scared, excited, or are feeling a combination of things, there is no doubt that this has been an emotionally taxing election season.

As we think about how we take care of our mental health and well-being in these times, knowing that each person is experiencing and processing this election differently based on their identities, experiences, and backgrounds, C+V, in partnership with ODEI and IEE, invite you to join Dr. Travis Heath, Associate Professor of Professional Psychology; Scott van Loo, Director, Learning Effectiveness Program; and fellow panelists for a Special Edition Community Talk: A Post-Election Community Space to reflect, dialogue, and absorb the election results and think about how we process, heal, and move forward together.

He is currently on a one-year leave and serving as a Visiting Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Denver where he is directing the Trauma, Disaster, and Recovery Clinic as well as serving as the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for the Graduate School of Professional Psychology. Past work he’s been involved with looked at shifting from a multicultural approach to counseling to one of cultural democracy that invited people to heal in mediums that are culturally near. His most recent work involves incorporating the work of Black abolitionist scholars into psychotherapy, community healing, and uprising.  His writing has focused on the use of rap music in narrative therapy, working with persons entangled in the criminal injustice system in ways that maintain their dignity, narrative practice stories as pedagogy, a co-created questioning practice called reunion questions, and community healing strategies. He is currently co-authoring the first book on Contemporary Narrative Therapy with David Epston and Tom Carlson. He has been fortunate enough to run workshops and speak about his work in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Norway, United Kingdom, and United States.
