DR Stacey Chimimba Ault, MSW PPSC CPC
This book chapter, Hope as Praxis, Pedagogy and Purpose: Using a Critical Post Traumatic Growth a Framework to Navigate Traumatic Environments, explores Dr. Ault's experiences in graduate school and offers hope to current or future Black scholars.
In 2020 Dr. Ault declared she was no longer going to center her research and her work in Black girl trauma. Critical Post-Traumatic Growth among Black Femme High School Students within the School to Prison Pipeline: A Focus on Healing explores Critical Post Traumatic Growth through the lens of healing and hope.
Dr. Ault's dissertation, Queens Speak, explored Critical Post Traumatic Growth (CPTG) among Black female students within the school to prison pipeline. This groundbreaking work introduced CPTG as an innovative framework for educational justice.
In 2015, Dr. Ault co-authored Singing with the Sirens with her friend and colleague, Ellyn Bell. Dr. Ault states,
"while much as changed in the anti-trafficking world and in our own lives, Singing with the Sirens remains a relevant and provocative piece of literature."
