A Special Clinical Program: Race and the Sociopolitical in Clinical Practice

The BPSI Training Outreach Committee is very pleased to invite you to a special post-conference discussion group designed for those who are in training in clinical settings, early career clinicians, academics, and those interested in learning more about psychoanalytic ideas applied in clinical and social settings. The group will be led by current BPSI candidates and aimed at fostering a conversation about the issues raised in the morning program.

The complex issues raised by Celia Brickman and Francisco Gonzalez have important implications for both everyday life and clinical practice. Questions that arise include: How do we wrestle with the unconscious and conscious racism inherent in many of the foundational ideas and texts of psychoanalysis? What have we traditionally subjected to analytic scrutiny and what has been left out? And how does engagement with these issues change what psychoanalysis is and can be?


The discussion group will run from 12:15pm-1:30pm, and lunch will be served.
