Join April Harvin and Christine Schmidt for their six-week workshop on developing racial literacy. This group is designed to equip heling people (therapists and other caretakers) to understand and respond to the dynamics implicit in internalized racial oppression, racialized sexual fantasies, racial identity concerns, colorism, privilege, and disempowerment.
Participants will leave this group being able to more honestly examine race-related issues and show up in the workplaces as a better ally and more confident caregiver/coworker.
Participants will be invited to:
– identify their personal and professional development goals for the duration of the group and
– bring in examples from their professional, personal, and community experiences, with particular attention to dilemmas in which societal stereotypes as well as familial re-enactments occur.
Group leaders will provide brief didactic presentations that incorporate best practices in alignment with participants’ goals.
