Ogechi Nwordu, Chesnut Hill University and Doctoral Intern, Center for Counseling and Student Development, UD.
Ogechi Nwordu’s winning proposal is “Healing Us: Cultivating Healing and Change Through Empathic Listening.” Members of the BIPOC community are traumatized from the toll of experiencing injustice, discrimination, violence, health inequalities and engaging in the constant fight for equality. Outlets to express their pain and receive daily racial healing are minimal, especially since most individuals within their community are also suffering and depleted in their ability to provide healing through empathic listening. This empathetic listening training will provide a vehicle for the development of multitudes of well-being facilitators within the University of Delaware BIPOC communities, and ultimately lead to stronger kinship bonds. A strong kinship network is a coping resource for BIPOC individuals.
