Santa Barbara public schools to offer ‘healing spaces’ for black students only
Beginning next school year, California’s Santa Barbara Unified School District will make “healing and affirmation” for black students “as accessible as school lunch.”
This is due to the district working with the UC Santa Barbara Healing Space clinic. According to its website, Healing Space “provide[s] a therapy space to address racial trauma and foster resilience” for black students and residents.
“The collective toll of racism on Black Americans in the US is widespread,” the clinic’s site reads. “This ranges from police brutality to mass incarceration to the school-to-prison pipeline and in today’s world, ongoing discrimination in the US healthcare system related to COVID-19.”
SBUSD students of color will be able to attend “regularly held youth workshops and ‘healing circles’ to address race-based stress and wellness,” as well as “individualized, direct therapy services [to] respond to incidents of racialized bullying,” the Santa Barbara Independent reports.
In addition, SBUSD Assistant Superintendent ShaKenya Edison said black students can partake of “celebratory cultural events” during lunch hour, “break bread” with black clinicians and “build an ‘internal community.’”
Edison said the district will make sure that black students are “known by name, face, and story on each of our campuses.”
