President of the American Psychological Association
Homecoming: Overcome Fear and Trauma to Reclaim Your Whole, Authentic Self
“Dr. Thema Bryant is teaching people how to come back to themselves and
handle challenges along the way of self-discovery.” – Nedra Glover Tawwab,
New York Times bestselling author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace
One of the foundational scholars on the topic of the trauma of racism, Dr. Thema Bryant
provides tools to meaningfully connect with a larger community, even in the face of
racism, sexism, heartbreak, grief and trauma. As a survivor of sexual assault, racism and
evacuation from a civil war in Liberia, she knows intimately the work involved in healing.
Having made the journey herself, in addition to guiding others as a clinical psychologist
and ordained minister, Dr. Thema shows how to reconnect with your authentic self and
reclaim your time, your voice and your life.
