I’m a white therapist and I care about racism.
What next? What do I do? Where do I go from here?
With Dawn Gwilt and Gillian Downie
If these questions resonate, then this workshop is for you. We are two white female therapists who are grappling with these questions ourselves. We don’t pretend to know the answers, but are offering a safely held space to experience, think about, and explore our whiteness. We feel that this subject has long been overlooked because of the prevailing worldview we were born into, where white people see themselves as unraced, as the norm from which other cultures differ. We will take as our starting point the fact that systemic racism exists, and that as white people, we play a part in either perpetuating or dismantling that system. From this starting point, anything will be welcome into the discussion and the process – the full range of our doubts, fears, emotions and experiences.
- Saturday and Sunday, 23-24 January 2021
