Positive Thought Counsellor Nabeel Rahman, M.A., RSW spoke at TedxUnionville!
Visible minorities play many different roles and live on the intersection of multiple barriers. We have to navigate through imposed identities, expectations and stereotypes that create innumerable challenges. As such, this talk focused on overcoming those challenges through acknowledgement, empathy, self-determination, and action.
How are we actively unaware of our participation in the structures of racism and discrimination? Join myself (Nabeel) and my brother (Nadir) as we discuss the impacts of implicit compliance and unconscious bias towards people of colour and in particular, the Black community. We share our understanding as people of colour and from an intention of advocacy. But we ourselves have much to learn and must hold ourselves accountable to actively break our own participation in systems of discrimination

Welcome to the first ever Positive Thought Podcast. This week, we discuss the Covid -19 pandemic from a mental health perspective and reflect on the impact it is having on our well being, our collective will as a society, and the resilience needed to accept the realities of factors and variables outside our control. Despite such challenges, we must hope for a better tomorrow to do our best today.
During this covid-19 pandemic, we often find ourselves thinking, when is this all going to be over? When will life resume back to normal? The way things used to be.
Perhaps things are not meant to go back to normal, maybe we are meant to be better when this is all all over. This is a short Positive Thought reminder by Nabeel Rahman, M.A., RSW, about mindfulness of being in the present during adversity.
Nabeel Rahman, M.A., RSW was a guest at the talk show - Let the Quran Speak to offer a faith based perspective on coping with stress.
