Please make sure you are logged on to the website to register!
Two-hour workshop on white privilege, white fragility and how these can impede the anti-racist work of white psychologists, despite our best intentions. We will describe and demonstrate how to recognize and interrupt racism in our personal and professional lives. The workshop will provide opportunity for experiential practice in how to have difficult conversations in which we can skillfully and compassionately confront racism when it occurs in both personal and professional settings.
1. That participants be able to define white privilege, white fragility and related terms.
2. That participants be able to explain how white privilege, white fragility and unconscious racism degrade the mental health of all racial groups, including white people.
3. That participants learn how to respond in instances of white privilege, white fragility and racism, both conscious and unconscious, in personal and professional settings.
