Resource description:

When we feel that difficult situations at work are caused by others’ perceptions of our culture or race, our feelings and frustration can feel really hard to manage or express.

To support racially minoritized staff, KeepingWell NCL staff wellbeing Hub is providing dedicated reflective group sessions facilitated by therapists from Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre. These sessions are a safe, confidential space to process and reflect on difficult work situations, organisational issues, and the feelings they evoke.

Some of these sessions explore specific themes. Given the current climate and multiple pressures e.g. cost of living, other sessions are open for participants to explore any topic that feels present in a safe and confidential space. 

Themed group sessions:

  • Islamophobia – Monday 24th October 2022, 11:00am-12:15pm
  • Micro-aggressions – Monday 13th February 2023, 12:30pm-1:45pm  
  • Antisemitism – Thursday 16th March 2023, 10:00am-11:15am
