NCSPP is committed to inclusion, antiracism and anti-oppression. Police brutality and other systematized abuses are unacceptable. Our organization is committed to calling out, recognizing and OPENLY condemning all violence against Black and Brown people. We are also committed to not turning away from the reality of White supremacy, the continuous trauma that has been enacted, and the hold it has had on this nation for hundreds of years. Neutrality is not a viable option. We, as a board and organization, stand firmly in our belief that Black lives matter and Black voices matter.
The workshop will scaffold a clinical supervisor’s self-reflection and learning about culturally centered clinical practices and ways to explore salient sociocultural issues with supervisees. It will investigate a contemporary psychoanalytic perspective and use indigenous and cultural narratives to invite supervisees’ own cultural history, personal identities, and social contexts into the supervisory space.
Join the PLC, along with guest speakers Molly Merson, LMFT, and Stephanie King, Psy.D., for a discussion of the 1991 classic Thelma and Louise, starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. Directed by Ridley Scott and written by Callie Khouri, this film follows the journey of two women defying patriarchal oppression and surviving in an unjust world. Attendees are asked to watch the film before the event, where our speakers will lead a discussion of the film’s themes through a psychoanalytic lens.
