What’s So Scary About Race?
Presenter: Sandra Walker, MD
This class will be based on thought exercises intended help participants identify areas of uncertainty, discomfort or vacancy in the experience of race as well as ways in which this might impact alliance, transference, and counter-transference in the clinical situation.
Prior to the class, Dr. Walker encourages you to watch the feature film Sankofa (1993), a film by Haile Gerima. (embedded below)
