Martha Kuwee Kumsa, Faculty of Social Work Social Work professor Dr. Martha Kuwee Kumsa looks at healing youth violence among urban ethnic minorities. Dr. Kumsa, a native of Ethiopia, has worked with youth from Ethiopia's Oromo community in Toronto. Many of them come from traumatic backgrounds in Ethiopia and have become re-traumatized by the experiences of poverty, racism and social marginalization in their new country.Dr. Kumsa is the lead researcher in a new SSHRC grant entitled “The Self-Other Issue in the Healing Practices of Racialized Minority Youth”. The three year project will take her research to the national level, studying racialized ethnic youth in Toronto, Vancouver, and Kitchener-Waterloo. “My hunch is that the issue of violence is reversible. I think we create violence and we can create healing, too”.
