Group Therapy Details

Black Women's Group:
As a Black Woman in America, are you often in a position where you have to fight and repeat yourself in order to feel seen and heard?
What’s your story about being a Black Woman in America?

This group is designed to provide a safe space for Black Women to:
Discuss issues and struggles that are unique to Black Women such as sexuality, colorism, and femininity
-Evaluate internalized beliefs about ourselves and our place in the world
-Evaluate and discuss different survival strategies that we have had to acquire to navigate a white and patriarchal society

Interventions:
-Narrative therapy (provides space where black women can tell their stories in a way that’s healing)
-IFS / Parts language (evaluate the parts that black women have had or were to forced to develop in order to survive, parts of us that have internalized racism and sexism, and evaluate other parts that have developed as a result of systemic oppression and historical/generational trauma)
-Somatic and mindfulness interventions (provides tools and resources for coping)
