A WAKE UP CALL TO THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY.

"The Pain Didn’t Start Here: Trauma & Violence in the African-American Community" by Denyse Hicks-Ray, Ph.D., B.C.E.T.S connects the clinical definition of psychological trauma and its affects of violent and maladaptive behaviors presented in the African-American community.

Revealing painful truths about African-American trauma, this important, cutting edge book takes the reader on a psychologist’s perspective of the journey of intergenerational pain and suffering. It explains how the affect of untreated pain has created a community that lacks cohesiveness and the skills to move forward in a society that would much rather have its citizens clean, safe and doing much less harm to children.
