Looking in the Mirror: A Community Conversation about Whiteness and White Privilege.
A discussion group facilitated by Jessica Slatus, LCSW, Certified AEDP Supervisor
Friday, June 26, 2020
1:00-3:00 p.m. MT
In light of the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade—among countless others—and the widespread demonstrations of support for the Black Lives Matter movement, many of us are feeling called to examine our own internalized racism and our complicity in the culture of white supremacy. We feel it is equally important for us, as a community of predominantly white therapists, to engage in this work. Therefore, in lieu of our scheduled Lunch and Learn meeting this month, we would like to invite you to join us for a conversation about whiteness and white privilege.
In AEDP, we privilege transformance – the capacity for growth and self-righting – and we work with our clients to stretch their growing edges. We recognize that talking about race and thinking critically about whiteness is an edge for many of us. It is vulnerable to begin to have these conversations, and it is important.
We invite you to bring your most curious, compassionate selves to this conversation. You do not need to have all of the answers or know the right thing to say. Just show up.
Please RSVP by 6/19. We will be keeping this group small in order to enhance safety.
