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.

If your Instagram feed looks anything like mine, for months you’ve probably been seeing tons of beautiful sisters in their homes surrounded by lots of luscious green plants. It seems like many of us have found solace in plants and other connections to nature recently. We wanted to dig into what’s driving this for us so we found two experts to share about their work and how we can heal through nature.   Beth Collier is in private practice as a Nature Allied Psychotherapist and writes on nature, health and race. She specializes in working with relational trauma in our connections with people and nature. Dr. Jennifer Roberts, an Assistant Professor of Kinesiology at the University of Maryland School of Public Health in College Park joined me to discuss her research which focuses primarily on the impact of our built environments and some of the ways programs are being developed to improve our access to nature within our city environments, including Medical prescriptions for Nature and other outdoor activities.

We know that our experiences of sexuality are as varied as we are and wanted to spend some time today digging into what it means to affirm your identity as a Queer person. For this conversation I was joined by Mychelle Williams, LPC. Mychelle and I chatted about what it might look like to explore your sexuality, some of the challenges Queer Black women experience in relationships, and how to find or cultivate spaces that are affirming of your identity. One theme that was consistent in our conversation was the impact that media can have on developing a healthy sense of self and of relationships as a queer person, so we also wanted to hear from an artist who is intentional about creating affirmative images of the Queer community.

idk still feels like the denegration of black women. idk why people think this representation of black women is new. people have always thought of us this way, as the Jezebel character. WAP just feeds into that stereotype. why can't we have songs about black mothers, engineers, and scientists. why are we, as the beginning of the song says, characterized as whores.

TY TY In the past, this was a prevalent part of my life. 🚨Being in constant crisis. **I'm glad you mentioned that it isn't a personal failure.** These are very useful tips of how someone can effectively hold space for another person while they are in crisis. I actually had to develop a Wellness Recovery Action Plan(WRAP) because I didn't have consistent resources to assist me during those times. It was useful as you advised to have a coping tools kit. I call it my GO BAG. It had to be ready for any moment of crisis. You listed so so many helpful things that I used & they were very effective. Namaste 🐬Peace 💃Shalom 🐒

TY TY This was an informative packed episode with a wealth of symptoms of sexual abuse as well as helpful resources & how to handle said situations. Many praise men for being hypersexual & not realizing that their hypersexuality or homosexuality or bisexuality or even asexuality could be symptomatic of prior sexual abuse. Many females get demeaned for being hypersexual or even multiple pregnancies when they may have been groomed & being sexually abused. I liked how both genders were recognized as potential targets & grooming & that victims can potentially become perpetrators. I agree majority of sexual abuse survivors were groomed & know their perpetrator(s) What also often get overlooked is that rape can also occur... when service members are deployed to war or within marriage to either gender. I'm just overjoyed for so much awareness & education & resources available for prevention as well healing after these travesties occurs. Sometimes, it is helpful to incorporate medication with therapy or even holistic healing approaches. Namaste 🐬 Peace 💃Shalom 🐒

In regards to the Tiffany's issue with postpartum depression, you mentioned that the friends were around right after the baby was born, but faded in the background not long after. I noticed that we as people are present for the joyous occasions (birthday) and the somber occasions (death), but we have a tendency to miss the heart of friendship that takes place between these two extremes.

Say that again. relationships requires much work. Getting married & having kids are not in my bucket list. Though I felt much pressure from family that I can't develop myself unless I have a child. A partner must be in alignment w/ my purpose & freedom & self development. My single & married life is very abundant. I have much flexibility to mentor more & to keep evolving & changing my jobs/business. I totally believe that I rather be single than to settle for a toxic masculine relationship. I firmly believe that getting into a relationship is a intentional choice not an obligation. It took much reprogramming. Now, as a single person it is now possible to foster & adopt kids. I had to limit my contact w/ family b/c I didn't enjoy all the pressure focusing on being partnered & many times people bring religion in the mix & I firmly express that there were many many single people & single parents & widowers in religious literature, actually all types of people & relationships are shown as examples. I'm all about self love & becoming emotionally intelligent. My life purpose is first & foremost. Make a single woman action plan this is similar to the mental health WRAP wellness recovery action plan or like an emergency plan. This was very insightful for someone to actually speak about what single people actually encounter.

My experiences w/ being ghosted. Give self a time limit. & Always continue your self care & self love routine b/c it's not about you; you may not be compatible or the other person isn't able to express their boundaries for whatever reason. But men & women both do this. It is polite etiquette, but it is prevalent. Definitely, talk it out it need be. Also continue functions w/ self & your community.
