USHA TUMMALA-NARRA READING GROUP
In preparation for the Annual Lecture with Usha Tummala-Narra, Ph.D., a reading group for community mental health clinicians will discuss selected works and consider how they apply to their work and thinking.
NCSPP is aware that historically psychoanalysis has either excluded or pathologized groups outside of the dominant population in terms of age, race, ethnicity, nationality, language, gender, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability, and size. As an organization, we are committed to bringing awareness to matters of anti-oppression, inequity, inequality, diversity, and inclusion as they pertain to our educational offerings, our theoretical orientation, our community, and the broader world we all inhabit.
Working in community mental health requires attunement to multiple factors affecting identity and experience in society. Members will review selected works related to the Annual Lecture to discuss how relevant themes of culture and identity apply to their work and how the conceptualize themselves and their clients.
This reading group is open to clinicians working in community mental health settings in non-profit and government-funded agencies.
