Product Description

As internationally acclaimed family therapist and educator Kenneth V. Hardy observes in this compelling video, slavery remains a contemporary ghost that shapes African Americans' self-image, their relationships to one another and their relationships with White Americans. Behind a backdrop of powerful historical and contemporary imagery, Hardy clearly demonstrates the importance of recognizing and openly addressing the past, and lays the groundwork for genuine dialogue, understanding, and healing in clinical environments, classrooms, and other settings. This video is a catalyst for discussion, a tool for beginning to move toward a more promising future by honestly confronting this deeply significant and painful aspect of our collective past. By watching this video program, you'll learn: *How residual trauma resulting from slavery shapes the contemporary African American psychological experience. *Ways the legacy of slavery continues to divide African Americans and White people today. *Why feelings of guilt and shame about slavery may lead to avoidance, denial and trivialization of this issue by White Americans. This video is an excellent resource for: *Fostering awareness and insight among non-Black practitioners and human service providers who work with African American clients. *Triggering candid discussions in multicultural training courses, clinical settings, classrooms, and beyond. *Promoting classroom discussions on slavery, Black history, American history, and current events. This program is licensed for Individual viewing only. For teaching and training purposes, please purchase The Psychological Residuals of Slavery (Instructor's Version).

This is an excellent summary of links between contemporary African American Culture and oppression. It highlights the practices of slavery and how the effects can have lasting generational effects upon a group. For those who may be puzzled, impatient or curious about why African Americans tend toward certain responses to certain societal issues, this well-edited presentation sheds light on the matter and invites the viewer into an empathic position. I consider it a "must see" for any social service person working with African Americans today. It raises excellent questions and describes experiences that can be discussed with Black clients, friends and colleagues as a way of creating meaningful dialogue between races.

I use this video as part of any training, lecture, or presentation I do on African Americans, cultural competency or Diversity. I've used it with a number of diverse audiences - professional mental health practitioners, early childhood educators, business organizations, and with both Black and White participants. This short video provides an excellent structure for 'courageous conversations' on the impact of racism on both Black and White Americans. More importantly Ken Hardy's video gives members of the Black community the framework for the conversations we need to have with each other. I highly recommend this video. It is worth every penny.

This video is a re-do of an earlier one that I've had from the 1980s. It is useful as an introduction to a conversation now takiing place about "historical trauma." As a teaching tool, it could be use to talk about historical trauma experienced by blacks in combination with a short segment on Native America historical trauma (genocide, boarding school, stigma from stereotyping and misrepresentation). Other videos on this history ought also be considered: "Slavery by Another Name," "Traces of the Trade--A Story from the Deep North," and Our Spirits Don't Speak English--Indian Boarding School."

As a therapist who happens to be an African American; I subscribe to all of Dr. Hardy's literary work.
