Expired Pride Month Panel with Dr. Beverly Greene

The Rainbow that Never Was:  Liberation Psychotherapy for LGBTQ People of Color in Turbulent Times

This panel discussion will focus on the importance of considering the complexity of experiences of clients who have multiple marginalized identities particularly at times when they are the focus of both historical and contemporary societal discrimination and negative stigmatization.  That discrimination includes a history of scientific and scholarly racism in the history of academic psychology and psychiatry, institutional mental health reflected in harmful social policies and treatment paradigms and the delivery of mental health services and methods that result in serious inequities.  Presenters approach treatment from Intersectional paradigms that view social identities as being in dynamic interaction with one another that lead to diversities in day-to-day experiences and challenges, that require interventions that take that complexity into account.

This free program is presented by Ackerman Training in recognition of Pride month.
