LIVE WEBINARS in May and June

Mother's Day Sorrow (May 1)

Counseling Considerations for Motherhood, Mothering, and Mother Loss in Black Communities

Mother’s Day in the age of Covid-19 presents new challenges for Black individuals seeking to navigate grief. In this webinar we acknowledge the pronounced history of the role of mothers within the Black community of the United States and examine the significance of Motherhood, Mothering and Mother Loss in Black communities. We will begin with a discussion of the history and role of Black mothers before addressing some of the contemporary problems faced by Black mothers. Next, we will explore the issues of maternal loss (loss of a child) and mother loss (loss of a mother). Finally, we will conclude with a discussion of useful, culturally conscious interventions for clients presenting with problems that arise around this holiday.

Father's Day Blues (June 5)

Counseling Considerations for Father Wounds, Father Fever, and Father's Day Issues in Black Communities

Black Fatherhood. From the iconic sitcom dads of “Fresh Prince” and “Family Matters,” to #girldad, to the incorrigible stereotypes of absent or neglectful Black fathers, there is no shortage of perceptions surrounding the role of the father within the Black community. In anticipation of Father’s Day 2021, we acknowledge that this holiday presents countless challenges, new and old, for many Black people. Consequently, this webinar begins with an examination of the history of Black fatherhood. Next, we explore contemporary problems faced by Black fathers. Lastly, we address the challenges arising from father-related losses in Black families and conclude with a discussion of implications for culturally conscious counseling practice.
