Brainspotting Phase 1: Attuning to BIPOC Experiences-Hybrid in person and online-Honolulu, Hawaii
“It is not our differences that divide us, it is our inability to recognize and celebrate those differences.” Audra Lorde.
All are welcome: BIPOC and non-BIPOC
This Brainspotting Phase 1 training will endeavor to challenge us to develop authentic and accountable relationships with each other, professional and client, as we strive to engage in anti-racist practices. We hold the belief that white bodied supremacy has impacted all individuals and that most training spaces center dominate culture, including white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, heteronormativity, neurotypical, cisgender, and Christianity, to name a few. We as clinicians have all been impacted by and carry implicit bias because of white bodied supremacy. Our implicit bias manifests as believing in the model minority, the strong black woman, the laboring Latina, and the appropriation of Indigenous culture. Our hope is that we can all support BIPOC communities and other marginalized experiences as they embark on their journeys of healing and recovery.
While we will be discussing white bodied supremacy and discussing anti-racism practices, this is not a specific training on anti-racism.
