Description

Break the cycle of racial trauma, build confidence, and thrive with this practical handbook just for teens. 

If you or someone in your family has experienced racism or racial trauma—such as discrimination or racial violence—you may feel like the experience has made you different from other teens. You may see the world as a scary or unjust place. And you may struggle with negative thoughts, sadness, anger, resentment, or shame. Over time, these negative thoughts and feelings can get in the way of school, friendships, and being your best. But there are ways you can move forward and start living the life you deserve. This handbook will help. 

The Racial Trauma Handbook for Teens presents evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills to help you overcome personal and intergenerational trauma, increase self-awareness, and build lasting confidence. You’ll learn how trauma can change the way you see yourself, and how you can break this cycle by learning more about your culture or heritage. Most importantly, you’ll find tools to help you balance your emotions, and put a stop to unwanted thoughts and memories associated with trauma, so you can find lasting peace of mind. 

Racial trauma doesn’t need to define who you are. With this book as your guide, you can heal from the past, discover your own hidden strengths, and cultivate a sense of pride in your identity and your place in the world. 

Break the cycle of racial trauma, build confidence, and thrive with this practical handbook just for teens.

Advance Praise

“Támara Hill has produced a book worthy of both clinician and casual reader. As such, it contains helpful and practical information that can jump-start a long-overdue conversation regarding the often taboo subject of race and mental health in our country. What I admire most about this book, however, is Hill’s hopefulness and her ability to convey empathy in a refreshing and insightful fashion.” 
—Don Laird, NCC, LPC, DCC, psychotherapist; and founder of eTalkTherapy, LLC 

“The Racial Trauma Handbook for Teens is a powerful book for Black and mixed-race teens, and for parents or guardians raising a Black or mixed-race child. The reflection activities and self-care strategies Támara Hill provides helps teens process racialized experiences and heal from racial trauma. It is heartbreaking that our children experience such trauma; however, this book will help guide them through these moments and develop confidence and self-love.” 
—Kaii Marie Robertson, restorative therapeutic yoga instructor and wellness educator, and cofounder of The Behavioral Health and Mind Body Economy
