This workshop explores rage from a depth perspective. It re-centers rage as inherently connected to love and explores the socio-historical context within which African American anger has been distorted and misunderstood. The goal of this workshop is to unpack rage as an archetypal dynamic and reposition caregiver’s understanding and reaction to rage through a deepened analysis of the socio-historical factors that accompany it. The workshop will focus on the transition from individual to collective contexts as essential to understanding and tending to rage and grief.
