Society For Psychoanalysis & Psychoanalytic Psychology and The Encounter Between Black Student Clinicians & the Racial Reckoning; I am honored to be one of the Presenters!

FREE & OPEN to the public. I am ecstatic to be 1 of 7 panelist members to present at the 40th Annual Conference for Division 39, a division within the American Psychological Association. Div.39 is one of the largest associations of psychoanalytic professionals in the world and I am proud to have co-organized this panel with my classmates and colleagues on the Encounter between Black Student Clinicians and the Racial Reckoning.

It is our hope that through this panel we can amplify voices that are often not heard and truly speak truth to power on the urgency of the BLM movement in clinical and academic settings. We know that often times these conversations happen in a vacuum, and wanted to make this event free so that all who want access to this information and community can feel welcomed. Thank you to our professor, Dr. Sheehi, for not only teaching us, but also advocating and empowering us for stages such as this. We hope you join us on March 14th at 6:30 pm EST.
