The Race Conversation with Eugene Ellis

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

£25.00 - £75.00
CaPPP CPD in-person & online

What racial differences impose on our minds and bodies as individuals and collectively as a society is demanding and complex. Social change begins with a conversation, but the challenge is often simply to remain coherent in our thinking, and often there is a feeling of being under-resourced to stay with the process. In this workshop, I will explore what happens in our minds and, also importantly, in our bodies in the midst of the race conversation and explore how a mindful approach to our physiological responses might support us as practitioners to stay in the conversation and find our voice.

Event Programme:

The workshop will be interactive and cover:

The impact of racial trauma on target and non-targets groups

Race-based stress models

How the construct of race disempowers and dampens compassion and clear thinking

Empowering you to navigate oppressive patterns and find your voice
