Sign Up Now for June 2017 Online Sessions on Racial Issues

With Psychologist Dr. Mary Ann Canty Merrill & Psychotherapist Fannie LeFlore

DESCRIPTION: These sessions, facilitated via video conference in real time, will explore how modern racial issues impact mental health – for those victimized by racism and those complicit in maintaining it. The lie of inherent white superiority (the false ideology that fuels systemic racism) is taking a toll of different people in tremendous ways. Racism distorts thinking and how people view reality. Racism prevents reasoning well about who diverse people really are at their core. It results in trying to force-fit people into categories of superiority and inferiority that simply do not make sense. Beliefs rooted in lies strain human relationships due to power struggles, and contribute to conflicting approaches, misunderstandings and miscommunication in ways that prevent positive connections from evolving.
