Description

Participants will explore the literature surrounding stereotypic roles of African American women: The Jezebel, Mammy, Sapphire, and Strong Black Woman (Hirsheld, & Joseph, 2011; Howard-Baptiste, 2014; Johnson-Bailey, 2015; Thomas, Witherspoon, & Speight, 2004). Critical Race Theory and Black Feminist Thought will guide participants in processing the content. Reaction and dialogue will greatly be encouraged. We have an ethical and moral code to uphold. We must: critically engage with the content, identify how the information resonates with us, and how it impacts our perspective of all of humanity. We, as counselors are the vessel toward change. Let’s ensure the change is positive.

Researchers will challenge participants to consider concepts of professionalism, presentation, engagement, and learning through the lens of stereotypic roles of African American women. Researchers will provide best practice recommendations for the profession to continue to uphold not only our ethical obligation but also to provide actionable items to launch “Growth through struggle: Cultivating strength and resilience” long into the minds of all participants well after the workshop.
