Emotional Emancipation Circles℠ are a collaborative between the Community Healing Network (CHN) and the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi). They are "self-help support groups in which we, Black people, work together to overcome, heal from, and overturn the lies of White superiority and Black inferiority: the root causes of the devaluing of Black lives."
As an ally to the Community Healing Network, The Black Girl Project is conducting a 2-day facilitator training that will prepare participants to lead trainings in their respective communities. EE Circle℠ workshops and trainings are “within-group” gatherings designed to equip members of the Black community to establish and maintain Emotional Emancipation Circles. The workshops and trainings focus on the underlying principles of emotional emancipation that should inform any effort aimed at improving conditions in Black communities and the specifics of Emotional Emancipation Circles, and how they can be used to help promote personal and community healing and transformation.
The training dates and times are Friday, May 12th, 7-10pm and Saturday, May 13th, 1-8pm.
For each workshop and training, CHN and ABPsi seek participants who are committed to emotional emancipation for themselves and their families and communities, willing to become advocates and champions for the idea of emotional emancipation, and willing to mentor others to help build the global movement for the emotional emancipation, healing, wellness, and empowerment of Black people. Participants are required to attend each session and each session begins promptly at the scheduled time.
