Open House and Conversation:  Racism, Antiracism & Psychoanalysis
While Racism and Antiracism remain at the forefront of our social, cultural, academic, and political climate, it's time to explore their presence in psychoanalytic education, supervision, and treatment. In this Conversation, we will explore ways in which racism may infiltrate our practice; and how we progress from sensing its presence to acknowledging and exploring it in our classes, supervision, and treatment.  
 
Course Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to identify the differences between racism and antiracism and how they may be present in treatment, supervision, and psychoanalytic training.
2. Participants will be able to increase confidence in discussing racism as a symptom and how to explore the concept and related feelings in treatment and supervision.
3. Participants will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of the history and the study of race in counseling, social work, and psychoanalytic training to date.
