"Race is a little bit like gravity," says john a. powell, "experienced by all, understood by the few." The Psychotherapy Institute presents renowned social justice advocate john a. powell at our Fall Symposium. Race is relational, Dr. powell reminds us. It's as much about whiteness as about color, and it largely plays out in our unconscious minds. Professor powell will share his ideas on race, identity, and 'othering and belonging' as a framework for exploring core concepts such as implicit bias, racial anxiety, and stereotype threat. Drs. Regina Shields and Diane Swirsky will join us for a dialogue adding clinical and theoretical perspectives on race and 'othering.' CE units available.
