> Mixed Race Matters - Reflective Group

The Centre for Emotional Health is running a series of three reflective group sessions for women exploring mixed race identity.


The group will follow the themes and discussion raised by its participants, however some example topics are:


• How you see yourself, how society sees you
• How it feels and what it means to be a mixed race woman
• Labels, which hat fits? Black/Asian//White/Biracial/Mixed heritage/Mixed race
• Half and half or whole?
• Caught in between; family, race and culture
• Belonging; the same but different/Different but the same?
• Racism and internalised racism
• Good enough? Compensating for not being white enough/black enough
• Hair, beauty, make up
• Confidence, self esteem, knowing who I am


The sessions will provide participants with an opportunity to explore and share experiences in a group setting (maximum 8 people).


The benefits of exploring emotions and identity in a group include:


• Sessions are experiential, allowing space for reflection, processing thoughts and feelings about identity
• Gaining different perspectives on similar experiences
• Reflecting with others who can more readily relate to your experiences
• Helps you to acknowledge your own feelings
• Develops understanding of how emotions can shape your worldview and self perception
• Having feelings and experiences acknowledged by others helps develop confidence
• Discover that thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour are shared by other people with similar circumstances - you're not alone


The sessions will be held on 23rd November, 30th November and 7th December from 7.00pm - 8.30pm at 85 Wimpole Street, W1G 9RJ.


Cost: £60 for three sessions
Facilitated by: Beth Collier, MBACP, Psychotherapist
