Growing up mixed race - Group therapy
Aim of the group:
To take a relational journey together that allows the group to explore their personal experiences of growing up as mixed race women.
This therapeutic space aims to provide a safe platform for mixed race women to share, explore and understand their experiences and the impact of this on three levels:
- Outer world - our experiences with people and things not relationally connected to us (strangers, systems, establishments).
- Inner world - our experiences with people and things relationally connected to us (friends, family).
- Internal world - internal psychology of who we are (self-concept, conscious vs unconscious).
Who is the group for?
Women who identify as mixed race/mixed heritage/dual heritage/biracial/multiracial – with particular focus on backgrounds combining privileged and marginalised ethnicities.
Group type: Closed group - this means that the participants will remain the same and not change for the six sessions.
Duration: Six consecutive weeks - every Sunday - 75 minutes each session.
When: Sunday 11th July - Sunday 15th August.
Time: 9:30am – 10:45am
Where: Online via Zoom.
