Indian health and healing lecture at WCU

Written by 

Eduardo Duran, a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with the legacy of historical trauma and Native American healing, will visit Western Carolina University to deliver the Biannual Public Lecture on Indian Health

The lecture, “Healing the Soul Wound,” will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, in the Grandroom of WCU’s A.K. Hinds University Center.

Duran defines historical trauma as trauma that occurs in families and is passed on to the following generation. Only when the trauma is dealt with will the cycle come to an end.

Duran has focused on creating effective intervention strategies for prevalent problems such as substance abuse, intergenerational trauma and internalized oppression.

He is the author of Healing the Soul Wound: Counseling with American Indians and other Native People, Native American Postcolonial Psychology, and The Buddha in Redface.

A reception and light refreshments will follow the lecture. Contact Lisa Lefler at 828.227.2164, 828.497.7457, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
