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.
