ChicagoEFT’s Second Healing Conversation: Centering Marginalized Voices & Creating Opportunities for Healing Connection

August 20, 2020

About the Event:

This healing conversation is designed for people of all races who consider themselves part of the ChicagoEFT community. This session invites active participation with the purpose of coming together and providing a holding environment for conversations about race. We are expanding the opportunity for therapists of color to name and describe their experiences within our organization. Our goal for this session is to continue providing a framework for active listening and holding the racialized wounds of subjugated therapists. Our second goal is to provide White therapists the tools to listen non-defensively in dialogue regarding race. The aim is to enhance deeper, honest and transparent dialogue that acknowledges the impact of structural racism in our lives.

Participation in the first call is not a requirement for this Healing Conversation, all are welcome.

Learning Objectives: Participants will

  1. Identify habitual behavior connected to privileged and subjugated identities.
  2. Engage in self-exploration and examine barriers to addressing race in a therapeutic manner.
  3. Practice new strategies for genuine and empathic conversations
