Clinical Conversation: The Black Woman’s Psyche presents a workshop on The Blame, Shame, and Fame of “The Angry Black Woman”
Building upon the discussion from the Black Woman’s Psyche Round Table, the African American Women’s Circle invites you to join a NO COST experiential workshop focused on helping Black women get in touch with their suppressed anger and emotions surrounding social injustice and oppression. This second roundtable will be not only interactive, but eye-opening for those in attendance who wish to better connect with clients of color, and for therapists who feel the burden of having to suppress their emotions due to fear of being labeled.
Co-Facilitated by Jeanne King, MFT, Zandra Ellis, and Tiffany Shelton
