Event Description

Back by popular demand, we will be hosting a monthly Black Clinicians Collective on the first Wednesday of each month starting October 7th. With the Black Lives Matter movement challenging and changing systems, families, and relationships our culture is finally examining the intergenerational trauma of slavery, segregation, and ongoing racial prejudice which negatively impacts Black people in America. The historically White mental health field has often ignored this ongoing crisis when diagnosing and treating Black and African-American clients. As the fight for action continues, building a community of Black clinicians who are able to support one another as humans and therapists in the long road ahead is vital for maintaining connectedness, staying grounded, and providing racially affirming therapy for clients of all cultures. As therapists, we are leaders in communication. More than ever, we must cut through the noise and harness the power of creating spaces to listen. We’re excited for you to join us in this opportunity to create continued forward progress in the mental health industry! Facilitated by Cheryl Donald, LMFT these discussions will be secure spaces where individuals can freely express their personal experiences and professional perspectives on a variety of topics. All groups will be led through the lens of social justice, with a particular focus on anti-racist work within a relational perspective. Appropriate for Black or African-American identified clinicians or students. In order to keep these discussions impactful, participation in the Black Clinicians Collective will be limited each month to a first come, first served basis.
