Minnesota Psychoanalytic Society and Institute Presents
SELDOM GREY: WORKING IN THE REALM OF RACIAL AND ETHNIC DYNAMICS
Clinical Moments with Himanshu Agrawal, MD
Friday, March 26, 2021
4:00 – 5:30 PM
1.5 CEU’s will be offered
Race, color, and ethnicity seep into the skin of every relationship. Nowhere is this more relevant and usable than in the psychodynamic dyad. This session will explore the intersectionality of race, from the South Asian perspective, as well as the impact of skin color, ethnicity, and the view the Other. The complexity of the therapist’s personal identity along these lines may be lived out differently than how the patient perceives and communicates. The session will explore, using clinical vignettes and audience interaction, how these dynamics emerge and can be responded to as transference perception and countertransference receptivity.
After attending this session, participants should be able to:
1. Summarize the intersectionality of race, ethnicity, and color as they emerge in the psychoanalytic dyad.
2. Describe how the intersectionality of race, ethnicity, and color effect transference and countertransference in the analytic dyad.
Typically, MPSI charges a nominal fee for our Clinical Moments Seminar’s. Due to the nature of the topic, the interest expressed by our members, and the timing, MPSI will not be charging a fee for this member only event.
For future events, the MPSI Program Committee is working on adding programming for members only, and for the greater community. At this time, this event is offered for members only. If there is greater interest beyond the MPSI membership, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gather that information for the MPSI Program Committee for future planning purposes.
