This session is for BIPOC students.

There are certain concepts and practices that help Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color to heal in the face of racial oppression and trauma. The Worthy of Wellness workshop introduces the theory of "Radical Healing" (French, Lewis, Mosley, Adames, Chavez-Dueñas, Chen, & Neville, 2020), an intersectional framework for wellness and liberation suggesting that healing from racial trauma occurs when one can be both critically conscious about systemic oppression and yet still envision personal and collective liberation. As a group (students, staff, or faculty), we will explore how to get closer to radical healing. Participants can expect opportunities for personal reflection, group dialogue and exercises, and practical resources to help them enhance their wellness.
