Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy Seattle Fall Class

Greetings Alliance Community. Hope you are enjoying your summer. We want to share news about what we’re planning for 2018-2019. We begin with a fall class. This class looks at the relational analytic literature with a focus on clinical implications of racism and othering. Each author in the curriculum highlights ways to move toward greater awareness of the ways race and othering may play out in the transference/countertransference field. 


Looking ahead, we are creating various learning and study possibilities, hoping to deepen our awareness, in personal ways, of how and why race functions as a powerful social construct. Drawing from writing from the RPPS community, authors outside psychoanalysis and various media we wish to deepen our dialogue with each other about how we are all implicated and effected by racism and to support each other in these turbulent social and political times.  Stay tuned for more details.
