About this Event
Speaker: Dr. Thema Bryant
All community members are invited to this session that is vital for every one of us who are living within the ongoing global pandemic and managing an inordinate amount of stress. Our focus on community care must begin with examining methods and strategies for cultivating our own individual sense of self care.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Thema Bryant back to Mount Holyoke to lead a special virtual session for students, alum, faculty and staff based upon her new book, Homecoming: Overcoming Fear and Trauma to Reclaim Your Whole Authentic Self.
Here's a description of the book:
In the aftermath of stress, disappointment, and trauma, people often fall into survival mode, even while a part of them longs for more. Juggling multiple demands and responsibilities keeps them busy, but not healed. As a survivor of sexual assault, racism, and evacuation from a civil war in Liberia, Dr. Thema Bryant knows intimately the work involved in healing. Having made the journey herself, in addition to guiding others as a clinical psychologist and ordained minister, Dr. Thema shows you how to reconnect with your authentic self and reclaim your time, your voice, your life.
