    Session 162: Processing Our Collective Grief

    Much of what we’ve been experiencing in various ways over the past couple of months is grief. To help us dig a little deeper into what grief looks like given our current state of affairs, Dr. Ajita Robinson is back with us this week. Dr. Robinson and I chatted about our collective sense of grief, how our rituals around grief have been upended, the importance of processing symbolic losses, and her thoughts about the work that will need to be done on the other end of the pandemic.

    Session 157: 20 More Questions for 2020

    Session 157: 20 More Questions for 2020

    In the last podcast episode of 2019, I shared 20 questions designed to help you set the tone for this year. Undoubtedly this year looks very different than we all imagined so it felt appropriate as we head into the halfway mark of this year to encourage you to spend some time with a second set of questions. And because I know many of you love a good handout with all of the questions in one place, I’ve made one for you that you can find at therapyforblackgirls.com/20morequestions
