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
Sponsored by Spiritual and Depth Psychology Specialization with the Village Health Foundation

English grammar often seems arbitrary and mean, burdening students with unnecessary anxiety over writing their papers “correctly.” This workshop proposes to help students fill in some of the gaps, but will also help students see the method behind English madness.
Together, we will strive to take the pain out of understanding the choices we make when
writing in English–for academic purposes or otherwise–using methods proven to hone the ear and ease the spirit.

Many students, fearful of plagiarism, will drop in direct quotes rather than risk paraphrasing or folding research into a paper in their own voice. This often results in awkward writing, poor transitions and the reader feeling as if the writer is hiding behind their quotes.
This workshop will demonstrate (with some hands on work), how to paraphrase and transition effectively and include research while keeping the students voice intact.
