Healing Racial Trauma Through Embodiment with Becky Carter

Trauma therapist, somatic practitioner, and speaker, Becky Carter specializes in complex trauma (C-PTSD) with a focus on supporting transracial adoptees and their families. Becky talks about her work with somatic healing of racial trauma, her own connection to her ancestral trauma, and how embodiment can serve as a vehicle for healing.

She shares her personal experience of being biracial and adopted at ten months old into a white family, reflecting on the varying experiences she had growing up that were informed by her biracial identity and the family that she grew up in.

Somatic healing work has been helpful for Becky not only with her clients, but also in her own healing. “To be able to listen to my body as a woman of color and to connect with it and know that it has something to tell me, and has its own wisdom — that has been transformative,” Becky says. 

Becky also reflects on racial trauma on an individual and societal level. She shares the importance of being present with and holding curiously for others, specifically people of color. The episode concludes with Becky reflecting on hope and the role embodied healing approaches can play in manifesting new possibilities.
