Welcome to Dr. Kris Gebhard’s (pronouns: they/them/theirs) website. The toolkit for building and maintaining resilience among communities targeted by state-sanctioned violence is here!

I thrive in and cherish several spheres: research and clinical work, organizing/activism, and art. I believe my work in each of these places contributes to, and can be shaped by, work in the other areas. Of course, each sphere has its own dialects, boundaries, cultures, and purposes — my activities in activism and art relate to my clinical work only when they do not cross the boundaries of professionalism that I respect and uphold clinically.  I am grateful for the phenomenal mentors and colleagues who bless each of these realms. Thank you.

If you came here looking for poetry, you’re probably familiar with the multiple roles we all have, and the translation we do. Check out my art page!
