4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on September 8 & 22, October 6 & 20, November 2 & 17
This is a group for students of color at WKU who are interested in giving and receiving support for living with racial stress and learning how to help ourselves and others harmed by racism. Students of color who identify their races as Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Asian American, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Natives, or Multiracial are welcome to join us. International students of color are also welcome to join us.
With the intention to create a safe and caring space, we will meet via Zoom biweekly throughout the semester to address the personal and interpersonal impact of racism on ourselves and engage in emotionally difficult self-reflections and dialogues. We will explore ways to work with racial distress and its impact on our personal and social identities and well-being, heal from racial trauma collectively, and be empowered to be change agents in our own lives. We will also practice mindfulness as a psychological skillto attend our minds, hearts, and bodies, with kindness, curiosity, and openness. We will learn how to manage our reactions to external and internal stressors, take care of our own emotional needs, and reconnect to our inner resources, while cultivating equanimity, courage, and compassion within us.
