“Understanding racism and white supremacy are endemic to the development of all authentic relations between humans, including humans and nature. My life work has become about cultivating capacity, spirit, compassion, resiliency, grace, perseverance, and healing. Our stories are unique, yet we are not alone. There is no hierarchy of pain or suffering. The challenge is recognizing how these experiences continue to shape our current understandings and relationships about ourselves and each other so we can co-create authentic social engagement for all our relations.
~Keita Annie Whitten Foster
About the Workshop:
This workshop will focus on introducing participants to an anti-racist practice model that will assist social workers in developing the ability to both expand capacity to understand the dynamics of transference and counter transference with regard to racialized tension. As social workers, we must be able to “metabolize” our own responses to race and also to allow for our clients the same space.This workshop will help you identify and manage racialized emotional fragility and what to do about it. You will learn techniques to help you and your client co create an environment of capacity to support authentic regulation for the emotional body.
