Black Grief: The Complexities of African American Bereavement and Loss.
In what ways is the African American experience of grief similar or dissimilar to the grief experiences of Euro-Americans? Might the topic of African American grief be neglected because of the historical pain that would have to be acknowledged? Do racism and classism play a part in different experiences of grief? The worldwide pandemic took a disproportionate toll on African American life and death. But early death and complicated grief are not new to African Americans. In this workshop, we'll discuss these issues and consider how to approach grief and loss in therapy via a culturally sensitive lens.
Objectives: 1. Challenge the generalized view of grief that grief issues and responses are universal. 2. Explore the ways that African American history, life experience and culture may create differences in the grieving process for African Americans 3. Consider how to approach grief and loss in therapy via a culturally sensitive lens.
