Racial Trauma Workshop Postponed to 2020

The “ Racism, Post-Traumatic Stress, & Transformation ” six-hour workshop, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14, at Simpson House in Philadelphia, has been  postponed and rescheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020 .

The workshop facilitator, the  Rev. R. Dandridge Collins  (Ph.D., M.Div), is recovering from a recent cardiac incident and has had to reduce his work schedule. A pastoral psychologist, author, lecturer, minister and trauma expert, he says he is eager to lead this educational dialogue for people of color in our conference at a later date.
