Whiteness in the therapy room attending to privilege, racism and difference

The event:

Whiteness in the therapy room – attending to privilege, racism and difference

The death of George Floyd and the worldwide protests that followed, including here in the UK, has brought to the fore the need for white people to talk, learn and take action around issues of race and racism, in all aspects of our social interactions, including counselling and therapy.

This workshop will provide space for therapists to think about their own racial identity, how similarities and differences with their clients can impact on the therapeutic relationship, and give some ideas for how to attend to this interplay within the therapy.
