African American Women's Group

We’ll use a non-traditional group approach, which aims to incorporate essential elements of African American culture.

Our goal is to help undergraduate and graduate students to move toward self-healing through collective sharing around multimedia stimuli, particularly for African American women. Topics are determined by the group but could include impostor syndrome, self-esteem, relationship concerns, academic stress, family conflict, being an African American woman at a PWI, life transitions, body image concerns, stereotypes, and more.

Screening is required.

Wednesdays, 1–2 p.m.; Fridays 10–11 a.m.
Jan. 20–April 23 

Wednesday Facilitators: Markie Silverman, PhD, LLP &  Amara Chukwunenye, MA, Doctoral Intern

Friday Facilitators: Tenille Gaines, PhD, LPMarkie Silverman, PhD, LLP
