We Need To Talk About Black Therapist Burnout

“Before serving as therapists, we are human first. We are Black humans."

When Covid-19 hit her hometown of Washington D.C., Maia Wise, LICSW, knew things were going to be different. But, while she feared exposure at work, at the same time, people were protesting for Black Lives outside the hospital. Her reality as a Black woman therapist had become exhausting.

Understanding Racial Trauma and Ways to Heal🌺

Date and time
Thu, 3 June 2021
4:00pm – 5:30 pm EST

This workshop brings in skills and tools taken from psychotherapy and behavioral therapies, to provide a healing & resilience tool kit.

About this event
The 'Understanding racial trauma' workshop is back! In case you missed our run of this earlier in February this year, we are back for another chance to catch this psychoeducational and tools-based workshop.

This offers a safe space to explore the complexities, psychology, and importance of looking at racial and cultural trauma. We will use what has already been uncovered about trauma treatment to build resilience through using various coping skills adapted from behavioral therapies.

You will:
Learn about trauma through a racial and cultural context
Recognize the affects, behaviors and symptoms of racial and cultural trauma

Practice skills and exercises used to treat the effects of trauma
Build a small set of skills to continue using when you need to outside the workshop

Be a part of a collective community within the workshop
You don’t need any experience in mental health to attend this workshop, just an open mind and some curiosity.

This workshop is best suitable for:
Those affected by racial and cultural issues. Those affected by issues advocated by the Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate movements. Those who have curiosities, shame and other feelings about their 'difference' or 'minority' status. Those who find it hard to explore these issues to others without judgment, dismissal or conflict. Those who want to celebrate their non-Eurocentricity. Anyone experiencing 'activist burnout'

Su***de Among Black Girls Is a Mental Health Crisis Hiding In Plain Sight

"Black youth are 2x more likely to commit su***de than white counterparts. This is due to a mental health stigma in communities of color + exposure to systemic racism in schools & elsewhere. We need mental health resources more accessible to our Black youth!"

Nearly 15% of Black female high schoolers attempted su***de in 2019
