by Aguirre, Priscilla E. M., M.A., Saint Mary's College of California, 2018, 84; 10825782
Abstract (Summary)

Women of color are a group within society that are victimized by oppression due to the intersecting identities of being both a woman and a person of color. Within higher educational settings, women of color are faced with more obstacles due to their newly earned status causing further prolonged stressors to occur. This project analyzes the impact that racism and sexism has on this population throughout development and how it affects their psyche and overall well being within a higher educational setting. This proposed group uses feminist multicultural counseling with a social justice foundation while integrating expressive therapy, mindfulness, and yoga to promote empowerment, healing, and connection through interpersonal group processing for women of color within higher education
