Emotional Emancipation Circle (for students of African descent)

At the Health Sciences Campus

Tuesdays, noon-1 p.m. (2nd and 4th of each month) led by Brinell Anderson, Psy.D.

Emotion Emancipation Circles are a safe space for persons of African ancestry to share truths of how we have internalized negative messages from broader culture, and/or dealt with expressed beliefs by others. If you have felt like an imposter in comparison to your peers, have coped with disproving harmful stereotypes, experienced incessant pressure to compare yourself to the dominant culture, or  felt as if you have to represent your racial group at all times, this is a space to explore these experiences and more. EECs are a collaboration between the Community Healing Network (CHN) and the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi).
