The Holmes Commission on Racial Equality in American Psychoanalysis was founded in August of 2020 with the mission to identify systemic racism in American psychoanalysis and to offer remedies for addressing systemic racism in the psychoanalytic community. The Commission conducted surveys and interviews of faculty, staff, and administrators of analytic institutes; candidates associated with training institutes; and people who were psychodynamically-oriented but had not entered a psychoanalytic training program. The Commission then synthesized their findings and released their report in June of 2023. The following is Chapter 7 of 9 chapters

As you read this chapter, reflect on how this account feels to read, and what it means to you, in particular, that this report was undertaken and written.    Consider what your particular identity and social position shape that response.

The chapter suggests the recommendations have “the aim of increasing capacity within psychoanalytic organizations to deal with racial enactments more productively.” What can increase our capacity to engage with enactments that involve racial elements in the consulting room or in groups?
