Unpacking Identity: IBPOC wellbeing workshop series

IBPOC faculty and staff at UBC are invited to register for Unpacking identity, care & healing: An IBPOC-only wellbeing workshop series taking place online March 12–21, 2024.

Self-care. Resilience. Trauma. Healing. These words are often brought up in conversations around wellbeing. In this four-part series, open to IBPOC-only faculty and staff at UBC, these concepts will be contextualized in a more community-centered way. Held across four separate days over Zoom, these workshops aim to unpack the importance of identity, culture and histories of systemic racism in topics related to wellbeing.

Throughout this series, led by psychotherapist Meghan Watson, attendees will have the chance to engage in reflective practice, develop insights, and apply practical tools to support your own wellbeing.

Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions, but can enrol to attend any number of the sessions.

  • Intergenerational trauma wounds: Unpacking our histories — Tuesday, March 12, 11 am–12 pm
  • Rest, self-care and the myth of resilience — Thursday, March 14, 11 am–12 pm
  • Financial trauma — Tuesday, March 19, 11 am–12 pm
  • Belonging, identity and community care — Thursday, March 21, 11 am–12 pm

This series has been developed for IBPOC faculty and staff only. Individuals are asked to self-select and enrol in this series with this in mind.
