The University Psychological Clinic is offering a new ACT-Based Therapy Group for Black women who struggle with anxiety and race-related stress. The 8-week group session will be held online via Zoom and is scheduled for 5-6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning April 2023.

Please contact the Psych Clinic or call (734) 615-7853 to learn more and to secure a spot in the group.

What to Expect

The ACT-Based Therapy Group is for women with a shared racial identity to learn tools and skills to ease anxiety, as well as build a support network with others who share similar experiences of overt/covert racism, which can lead to many psychological and physical ails.

The group is designed to help you build a positive cultural identity and strong sense of self to mitigate imposter syndrome that is often experienced by black women who face systemic racism. Additionally, the group will work to eliminate the myth of a strong black woman, therefore empowering you to engage in self-care and self-compassion.
