209 Trauma in Context

Ken Hardy

Ken HardyThe sociocultural dimensions of what can keep traumatized clients stuck—issues like family dynamics, poverty and racism—are too often ignored in clinical work. In this session from our Webcast Series on trauma, Kenneth Hardy underlines the relevance of these sociocultural issues and teaches you how to:

  • broaden your clinical frame of reference to better work with marginalized populations
  • find the hero in all youth, including difficult youth who act out their trauma in aggressive ways
  • name the invisible wounds of cultural trauma in order to make them part of a healing discourse


Kenneth V. Hardy, PhD, is the director of the Eikenberg Institute for Relationships and professor of family therapy at Drexel University. He’s the coauthor of Teens Who Hurt: Clinical Interventions to Break the Cycle of Adolescent Violence and Re-Visioning Family Therapy: Race, Culture, and Gender in Clinical Practice.
