As part of BPSI’s Anti-Racism Commitment, BPSI is making a Public Commitment to Reading the Holmes Commission Report. We invite you to read with colleagues, in community gatherings, and during upcoming BPSIREADS programs. Watch for announcements soon!

The Holmes Commission on Racial Equality (CO-REAP) of APsA was launched in October 2020, with a mission of studying systemic racism in psychoanalysis, and offering plans towards racial equality in our field. On Juneteenth, the Holmes Commission released its historic full report.

As one of many initiatives to fulfill BPSI’s Anti-Racism Commitment we offer this Resources List to our colleagues and the public, with contemporary literature on race and diversities, in hopes of promoting reflection, dialogue, and psychoanalytic scholarship in the service of promoting racial equality in psychoanalysis.
