Race inclusion and embodied reflexivity

Race inclusion and embodied reflexivity

The lack of diversity awareness in psychotherapy professional circles means that unacknowledged white therapist privilege will neglect the embodied realities of clients enduring systemic racism, who experience micro aggressions accumulating into paranoia, depression, anxiety or dissociation. 
As a predominantly white middle class group, somatic psychotherapists hold the power and responsibility to address Whiteness as a secure attachment and baseline normative experience of relationship and embodiment that is not shared by everyone.
In this workshop, we will explore how therapists can further inclusion and social relatedness through using somatic competencies that support embodied reflexivity and the critical reflection of their own position, power and privilege.
