Experiencing racism or directly and indirectly witnessing racism can be overwhelming and often trigger challenging emotional responses, such as fear, anger and shame.

The workshop aims to help you build the skills to understand your emotions after racial incidents, particularly those who are overwhelmed. This workshop will also help you return to emotional balance and calmness.

Who are suitable for this workshop:

  • people who have experienced racism
  • direct witnesses to racism
  • indirect witness to racism (e.g. hear incidents through friends or media)

About Resilience Against Racism

Everyone deserves to belong. Whether you are a recently arrived international student who is living and studying in Australia temporarily or an Australian of different cultural backgrounds, every person regardless of race and religion deserves to feel belong in Australia. However, according to the Scanlon Foundation Mapping Social Cohesion report, 1 in 5 people experience racism in the community. In these few months since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen more racist sentiments towards people of Asian appearance.

Resilience Against Racism (RAR) aims to help individuals build personal and community resilience to cope with such adversaries. RAR will feature a series of evidence-based and practical workshops facilitated by culturally diverse organisational psychologists for people who may have experienced racism themselves, a direct witness or indirect witness to racism. Designed by people with lived experiences and culturally diverse social innovators, RAR is a unique approach to empowering individuals and communities to combat racism and strengthen their self-confidence and sense of belonging.
