Women of Color Coping Circle

Mental Health Uncoded

Friday, December 4, 2020
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Online
This will be a drop-in workshop held on Fridays from 2:00p-3:00p virtually via WebEx. See link below in Comments section to register and receive meeting link and password.

Our hope is to create a community in which our sisters can speak about their journeys navigating oppressive (often patriarchal and cis/hetero-normative) systems and learn tips for how to engage in mental and emotional wellness from liberating and empowering perspectives. During six weekly, themed workshops we will explore how our race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality impact our ability to feel safe/heard in systems that prioritize whiteness and privilege. We believe that finding a shared voice in collective experiences of being misheard/not heard will give rise to resilience, solidarity, and liberated wellness that recognizes the impact of toxic environments.

If you or students you know identify as women of color and are interested, please contact the Counseling Center at 410-455-2472; you can also reach out to group leaders directly (Dr. Whitney Hobson at whobson@umbc.edu and Roshan Javadian, M.Psy at roshanja@umbc.edu). Please see attached poster for more information and upcoming themes to be explored.
