Dr. Goodman will discuss intersectional trauma and resilience as a framework for clinical practice and advocacy. Together, we will spend the day examining and exploring work with immigrants, refugees, and trauma survivors broadly. We will also build strategies for “community care” rather than simply “self-care” as an essential element of the work that we do.

Speaker: Dr. Rachael D. Goodman, LPC (she/her), is an Associate Professor in the Counseling Program at George Mason University. Dr. Goodman’s expertise centers around trauma and resilience, and is grounded in social justice. Since 2014, Dr. Goodman has been engaged in community-based participatory action research (CBPAR) that seeks to understand and address intersectional and structural trauma and stress in partnership with undocumented immigrants.

Dr. Goodman provides consultation and professional development to schools and agencies on issues related to trauma, stress, and trauma-informed care; compassion fatigue and burnout; and community and self care. She is Past President (2017-2018) of Counselors for Social Justice (CSJ), a division of the American Counseling Association (ACA), and currently serves as the CSJ Representative to ACA’s Governing Council. Dr. Goodman is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the District of Columbia.
