As care in our community continues to be of utmost importance, particularly during this especially disrupted and unsettled surround and environment, NCSPP would like to offer resources that we believe are relevant to the clinical practitioners of our membership, and their patients. Please follow this link for further information with the understanding that information and guidelines will continue to develop and evolve. We will do our best to reflect the most current information available.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus concern, NCSPP has decided to suspend all in-person courses/events through June 2021. All events will be held via Zoom or other virtual platforms. All registrants will receive an email with the corresponding links upon registration.
We will continue to make decisions about our programs at appropriate times, with the health and well-being of participants and instructors in mind, and with the guidance and restrictions put in place by state and local health officials.
Through a review of an interview with Lara Sheehi, PsyD, and an article by Leilani Salvo Crane, PsyD, this reading group aims to stimulate thoughts and reflections surrounding clinicians' and patients' identities, perceived or otherwise, and desires and challenges in finding mutuality. It is crucial to begin conversations to decenter whiteness, in which individuals within the consultation rooms are not assumed to be white as well as examining racism and other oppressions among BIPOC clinicians and patients, especially in a community mental health setting in which multiple intersectionality of identities and disenfranchisement are often witnessed and felt.
