About the Author

Livingston Professor of Theology (NBTS), and a Reformed Church in America General Synod Professor of Theology.

He has also served as a pastor, youth director, and consultant to churches for over thirty years.


The question "What do we do?" when facing the historical problem of racism is complex. It's even more complex to answer that question as a member of the demographics targeted by racism. Responses to the question are often trite and lack the content adequate to the problem. In contrast, Professor Micah L. McCreary offers a robust, trauma-informed analysis of racism's impact on African (Black), Latino/a/x, Native (Indigenous), and Asian Americans that addresses complexity and proves adequate to the problem. This book is sure to become a classic text in its field. --Reggie L. Williams, McCormick Theological Seminary

Drawing on years of clinical practice, Trauma and Race answers the question of how to provide trauma-informed counseling that attends to the role of interlocking systems of oppression in racial trauma. McCreary deftly explores both theory and practice to offer creative therapeutic techniques that incorporate attention to psychological, social, and spiritual perspectives. This book is a necessary companion for therapists, counselors, chaplains, and pastoral caregivers--all of whom seek to provide healing at the intersection of race and trauma. --Leah Thomas, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary
