Co-Sponsored by COR, NPSI, NWAPS & SPSI
We are pleased to present another co-sponsored online event examining the intersection of race and psychotherapy, held via Zoom, on October 7th, 9am-noon (Seattle)/ 12p-3p (New York), 5pm-8pm (London). In part four of the Speaking About Race series, we invite you to examine your own relationship between individual racism, institutional racism and classism. Davids has written and presented extensively on the inner processes at work in our minds when these internal and external worlds collide. Through lecture and small group discussion we will explore our own unconscious biases at play and learn how to better address them in the consulting room.
