Book Description :

In the 16th century, the beginning of African enslavement in the Americas until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment and emancipation in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, isn't it likely that many of the enslaved were severely traumatized? And did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery? Emancipation was followed by one hundred more years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage, convict leasing, domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in yet unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas, endured generation after generation by a people produce? What impact have these ordeals had on African Americans today? Dr. Joy DeGruy, answers these questions and more. With over thirty years of practical experience as a professional in the mental health field, Dr. DeGruy encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and behaviors through the lens of history and so gain a greater understanding of how centuries of slavery and oppression have impacted people of African descent in America. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome helps to lay the necessary foundation to ensure the well-being and sustained health of future generations and provides a rare glimpse into the evolution of society's beliefs, feelings, attitudes and behavior concerning race in America.

Book Description :

From acclaimed author and researcher Dr. Joy DeGruy comes this fascinating book that explores the psychological and emotional impact on African Americans after enduring the horrific Middle Passage, over 300 years of slavery, followed by continued discrimination. From the beginning of American chattel slavery in the 1500’s, until the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865, Africans were hunted like animals, captured, sold, tortured, and raped. They experienced the worst kind of physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Given such history, Dr. Joy DeGruy asked the question, “Isn’t it likely those enslaved were severely traumatized? Furthermore, did the trauma and the effects of such horrific abuse end with the abolition of slavery?” Emancipation was followed by another hundred years of institutionalized subjugation through the enactment of Black Codes and Jim Crow laws, peonage and convict leasing, and domestic terrorism and lynching. Today the violations continue, and when combined with the crimes of the past, they result in further unmeasured injury. What do repeated traumas visited upon generation after generation of a people produce? What are the impacts of the ordeals associated with chattel slavery, and with the institutions that followed, on African Americans today? Dr. DeGruy answers these questions and more as she encourages African Americans to view their attitudes, assumptions, and emotions through the lens of history. By doing so, she argues they will gain a greater understanding of the impact centuries of slavery and oppression has had on African Americans. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome is an important read for all Americans, as the institution of slavery has had an impact on every race and culture. “A masterwork. [DeGruy’s] deep understanding, critical analysis, and determination to illuminate core truths are essential to addressing the long-lived devastation of slavery. Her book is the balm we need to heal ourselves and our relationships. It is a gift of wholeness.”—Susan Taylor, former Editorial Director of Essence magazine

Book Description :

One group that has received little attention in the psychological literature, with regards to issues of race as related to the practice of psychology, is the military. The military is a unique cultural entity that most people think provides soldiers of African descent with the system and resources they need to serve in the U.S. military. Author, Janetra Johnson, had chronological over a decade of National Guard history, in which she discovered the National Guard erroneously maintained a deregulated EEO and AEP program.Janetra is a military veteran and she fought the Guard over its deregulated pay policy during the California National Guards largest financial crisis. The California National Guard's recruiting bonus controversy was the largest known financial calamity and it had received little attention.Inside the book, Janetra walks her readers through the process of how she dealt with those financial thoughts of slavery and the Jim Crow era. The book is written from the perspective of a veteran of African descent, who had experienced Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) while serving in the California Air National Guard and has managed to experience a great reduction of these symptoms over the years. The book tells the story of how she found out about PTSS.What is Post Traumatic Slave Disorder?According to Wikipedia, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing (PTSS) is a 2005 book resulting from years of historical and psychological research by Dr. Joy DeGruy (née Leary), Ph.D. PTSS describes a set of behaviors, beliefs and actions associated with or, related to multi-generational trauma experienced by African Americans that include but are not limited to undiagnosed and untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in enslaved Africans and their descendants. PTSS posits that centuries of slavery in the United States, followed by systemic and structural racism and oppression, including lynching, Jim Crow laws, and unwarranted mass incarceration, have resulted in multigenerational maladaptive behaviors, which originated as survival strategies."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Janetra Johnson studied the African American culture during slavery and the Jim Crow era. She also studied women rights. She earned a Bachelors in Philosophy, Pre-law, and a Masters degree in Business Administration. She had written a series of books about her experiences in the California National Guard. These books were written from the perspective of an African American veteran.

Book Description :

The purpose of this book is to explain how the intergenerational trauma derived from slavery segregation, and insidious racial animus has impacted on today's African Americans. The psychological abnormalities or deviances are examined from their root causes. Masking of the resulting conditions are perused for their socioeconomic implications. Independent reasoning and the appropriate setting for its development are suggested. In addition, awareness of the greatness of our ancient legacy is presented to break the psychological chains causing Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS). The book describes how PTSS leads to abnormal bouts with rage and abusive behavior, mostly against other blacks. Awareness of the trauma often leads to denial through greater reliance on defensive behavior that departs from reality. PTSS is triggered both internally and through DNA memory and externally by the racially hostile society that we live in. Research on this subject by Dr. Joy De Gray is reviewed and analyzed. An unexamined PTSS in denial is traced to mental slavery that causes dependency and identification with victimizers. This mental slavery is based on fear and inferiority complex that produces distorted views of self. Liberation and enslavement become indistinguishable. Individuals become psychologically self-destructive, a burden to themselves, loved ones, and society. Options to find "the better angels" of our true history to break PTSS's cycle and resulting impact are presented.

Book Description :

I describe in this book how the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome has historically and currently affected my own family, and subsequently many other Black families. The book suggests that pre-slavery, Middle Passage, post-slavery, and modern-day conditions contributed to the Black family’s pathologies. It goes on to demonstrate the manifestation of some of these specific problems in my family that has been caused by these historical conditions. It shows how the past continues to write on the slate of today. It also implies that the Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome will continue to affect the Black family in the distant future.

Book Description :

Transform Negative Thoughts and Behaviors into Positive Ones with the Help of this Empowering Guide! “Should I sacrifice my life to live ‘Half American’?” “Will things be better for the next generation in the peace to follow?” “Is the kind of America I know worth defending?” Those were just some of the heart-wrenching questions put forward in a letter by a 26-year-old dark-skinned African-American army veteran named James G. Thompson in the 1940s. His letter was addressed to the editors of the Pittsburgh Courier, which the latter then published. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome is a mental and social theory coined by Dr. Joy DeGruy. It takes into account a series of events and situations, including Jim Crow laws, mass incarceration, and natural disasters, over time that are meted out more harshly against the African-American community, beginning with slavery in America. Inside this book, the author Janetra Johnson discusses how she found out about Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, how she was able to manage her negative thoughts, as well as what other veterans should look forward to when visiting a military therapist to discuss their racial and financial thoughts of slavery and Jim Crow. Johnson seeks to help other veterans left with psychological wounds after a racial incident during military service by providing practical tools to help them develop skills that transform negative attitudes and behaviors into positive ones — with the end goal of empowering the veteran to not just survive, but also thrive as they live life and achieve true healing. Over the course of this inspiring book, you will: - Immerse yourself in a military veteran’s first-hand account of her fight for justice and the mental health struggles she faced during those challenges - Identify triggers and symptoms, so you can avoid a personal crisis and stay on track towards self-improvement - Learn 3 practical and useful tips to reduce those unwanted and intrusive thoughts of slavery and Jim Crow - And so much more! What makes this book unique is that it addresses the personal and private dilemmas dark-skinned African-American military soldiers and veterans have struggled with for generations. In Johnson’s own words, “Keep moving forward.”

Book Description :

This interpretive qualitative study used Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) and Bowen Family Systems (BFST) theories to explore mental health service use by African Americans. The goal of the study was two-fold. First, to increase understanding of the lived experiences of African Americans, with consideration of the impact of historical and ongoing race and oppression, across generations. Second, to explore mental health service use via the lens of the African American experience. Data collection included the use of two semi-structured interviews, a focused genogram and a demographic questionnaire. All participants self-identified as African American and were comprised of seven females and two males. The data analysis revealed themes in two main categories: The African American Experience and Conversations about Mental Health. The resulting themes as follows, with four in the first category and three in the second, respectively: ongoing racism and oppression, symptoms of PTSS, strength and character, The Talk, types of sharing, perception and the service use advocate. The findings provide the context through which the African American experience influences mental health service use.

Book Description :

In the same vein of their spiritual forbearers, the African griots, African American wordsmiths utilize their time-binding capabilities in oral performances to reenact and reinterpret the past as a medium to resolve the conditions of post-traumatic slave syndrome affecting marginalized urban black communities. In this thesis, I argue African American griots constantly re-evoke and address the traumatic experiences of slavery and post slavery; and fusing the two separate entities of the past and present as a cathartic/coping mechanism to achieve four basic goals: 1) foster self-esteem, 2) to reflect/instill black consciousness/pride 3) to exhort political activism against colonial/neo-colonial forces and 4) to establish a new or to reconnect African Americans to a African-based spiritual/communal worldview. By establishing continuity between the ancestral past and the present, I make the claim that verbal artisans strive to heal the psychological wounds stemming from slavery and post slavery conditions.

Book Description :

The purpose of volume 2 of 3 is to present how our African ancestors ruled and excelled from the beginning of the multiracial Roman Empire of antiquity through its Christian rule over Europe for nearly 2,000 years. They provided the Europeans with the first civilization and Christianity in excess of two millenniums. This rule and hegemony was overturned by Germanic nationalism, the Protestant Reformation, Thirty and Hundred Year Wars, populism and constitutional limits on Black Moors inbreed royals and nobles who held absolute powers in the early 19th century. All of Christendom from Western Europe through Russia was ruled by our ancestors who worshipped a Black Madonna and Christ out of Rome and Constantinople. With white wigs and facial powder, as well as whitened images, these rulers fought to maintain their rule against the rising intergenerational white resentment. That resentment fueled the harness of African slavery, colonialism and racism that traumatized Africans and Africans in Diaspora (African-Americans) seized as property for the benefit of white wealth. Prior to this traumatic racial transformation, millions of white Europeans were kidnapped as slaves of Black Barbary pirates and others served Black Moors as their "serfs" or "vassals" in Europe for more than two millenniums.
