trauma healing emerges in response to unjust conditions. In that regard,
women have played a significant but invisible role, in their rights to
challenge longstanding subordinate social, political, rule of law and economic
inequalities, across areas of healing trauma, war crimes, war, violence,
genocide, gynocide, ethnic hatreds, diaspora, refugees, race, class, sexuality,
and identity studies. The Kolo Informed Trauma Care continues to instill
material, social, cultural, and political changes, self-worth, and recognition
of women as an invaluable nonkilling resource in face of diverse forms
of subordination in a world of violence.

women issues have been discussing the alliances between a diverse range
of organizations and issue-based movements within a global society, transgenerational
trauma and a diverse cast of women at the front-lines of wars and violence
has been absent. With the women life experiences on the front-lines,
the kolo (Serbo-Croatian) to be in a circle or to dance the folk round

The Kolo Informed Trauma Care in the context
of healing trauma and motherhood, witnessed new narratives emerge alongside
contemporary forms of activism. It is through narratives of trauma and
motherhood call for new approximations to the marginalized voices and life
experiences of women.
As a means of a collaborative and cross
cultural collaborative expression, representation, and political change
against patriarchal ideological domination, this panel invites abstracts
for women focused psychology, a wide interdisciplinary scholarly works
and more importantly women at the front lines that examine the nonkilling
intersectionality; the interconnected nature of social categorizations
such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or
group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination
an awareness of intersectionality, we can better acknowledge and ground
the differences among us.”

sexual violence, adoption, or domestic violence). Central to the non-killing
Kolo Informed Trauma care discourses, the question can be posed as to which
forces shape both women’s marginalized voices and obfuscate women’s capacity
to create a peaceful culture thus eradicating violence and healing trans-generational
trauma. How do women and mothers empower themselves through different means
of activism (art, expression of their life experiences, herstory, writing,
political activity, volunteerism, etc.) that are already grounded in the
non-killing Kolo Informed Trauma Care practices?

scholars to submit academic papers, creative writing, and artistic pieces
