CRTIC: The Wisdom of Lived Experience

In this episode, we speak with two women who both have used their own experiences to forge new paths and address inequities for people in their respective communities. Dr. Anitra Warrior, Ph.D., LP, is an American Indian Psychologist from the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma, who has dedicated her career to underserved populations throughout the state of Nebraska. Doty Shepard is the Executive Director of Resilient Colorado | Cultivate Resilience, originally founded to serve the southwest Colorado region where she makes her home, and which has now achieved international reach. They shared their wisdom in recognizing and counteracting our biases, gave us insights into trauma-informed communication, and revealed how they are responding to moral injury, each leaving us at the end with one word to consider for our individual practice of trauma informed caring.
