The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.
Last week we talked about some of the incredible benefits we experience from being connected to nature and you heard a little about how this connection has often been damaged in our community for lots of different reasons. Today we’ll be chatting about the ways the Black community has been disconnected from nature and the impact it has. For this conversation, I was joined by J. Phoenix Smith, MSW. She and I chatted about her practice of liberation ecotherapy, how she combines all of her experiences in working with clients, how the trauma to the land shows up in our experiences, and of course she shared some of her favorite resources if you want to dig in more.
