4/27/2024- Professional Reparations: What Should We Repair?

Beverly Burch, PhD

Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm PST. Hybrid Course.

Professional Reparations:
What Should We Repair?

Our profession is in a transitional moment. Two major reports, the Holmes Commission on Racial Equality in American Psychoanalysis and the CA Task Force on Reparations, take a deep look at our profession and find racial equity lacking. We’ll review their findings, learn how to support change and contribute our own thinking about what we need to do to move forward to equity. We’ll also consider resistance to these reports and the need to engage with critical voices.

Course Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to discuss issues of racial inequity in the psychotherapy profession.
  • Participants will be able to identify the impact of deficits in the profession.
  • Participants will be able to identify recommended remedies in the training of psychotherapists.
