In addition to the blatant and subtle racism experienced in LA every day people of color juggle relationships, careers, self-care, and trying to “make it” in an unforgiving and fickle city. Words like “tough” and “stressful” barely scratch the surface of what it feels like to be black in this country. Research tells us how this stress can impact our physical and mental health, but we are still often confused about the best ways to deal with the issues that have plagued us for generations.
B. Valkyrie presents, “V.E.N.T.,” a ten-week closed group focused on handling and healing community stress. This class type course will provide psychoeducation on cognitive behavioral therapy, generational trauma, and attachment theory while also exploring healthy coping mechanisms for stress and the importance of self care. The group will begin mid-August for adults coping with societal and environmental stress.
“V.E.N.T.” will be offered Thursday evenings, beginning August 24 through October 26, from 7-9 p.m in Downtown Los Angeles. More information will be sent to those confirming attendance before the group.
