Racial Healing: Creating Space for Wellness Throughout College will be a workshop hosted virtually on November 18th at noon.

Transitions to college are often accompanied by race-related stress, which can impact a student’s ability to succeed. In particular, students of color can face experiences such as imposter phenomenon, microaggression, an invalidating campus climate, and mental health stigma. Being aware and becoming equipped to handle these concerns can help not only survive, but thrive. This workshop will provide students of color and their allies with information on the types of issues they might face, how to cope to maintain their physical and emotional well-being, answer questions about monitoring their health, and provide best practices for seeking assistance and available resources. This workshop will be presented by guest speaker Marcia Liu, Ph.D. who is a Licensed Counseling Psychologist. She was born in NY before moving to Maryland. She received her BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, her MA from NYU, and her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Boston College.  As part of her clinical training she has practiced at the South Boston Behavioral Health Center and the Brookline Community Mental Health Center, working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. She completed her psychology internship at the Brooklyn Campus of the Veterans’ Affairs Hospital, and her postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University’s Counseling and Psychological Services.   Dr. Liu serves as the Mental Health Coordinator for the Hunter College AANAPISI Project (HCAP), working to increase awareness and understanding of the many mental health needs of Hunter’s diverse Asian American/Pacific Islander student body.
