Beyond The White Gaze: A Sanctuary for Therapists of Color

This workshop will share ideas and findings generated by the Therapists of Color Consultation Project at the Ackerman Institute.  The training will address the impact of internalized racism on therapists of color, including the themes of learned voicelessness, “covering” (Yoshino, K. 2007), and shame. The project team will describe how this exploration creates a within-group sanctuary that allows for more generative conversations about race and racism, greater safety in sharing vulnerability, and the de-centering of whiteness.  This sanctuary empowers therapists of color to facilitate conversations on race and racism in clinical practice with families.


Presented by Julia Chan, LCSW; Walter Vega, LCSW; and Marissa Moore, LMHC
