Title: Dawn Estefan – The Black Screen: an exploration of the arbitrary visibility of blackness in the working alliance between the educator and student, therapist and client. Is blackness a neutral, passive and inanimate presence in both spaces?
“As a social scientist, I made it my role not to just be a member of a group who could be targeted by bias but to do something about it. To investigate, understand it, and communicate with others.”
Dawn Estefan is a psychodynamic trauma psychotherapist who has a special interest in the intersectionality of race, culture, gender and spirituality and their impact on mental health. Dawn is known for her commitment to mental health community activism and empowerment of women, and is a keen advocate for the use of psychoanalytic thinking as an exciting way to make sense of our lives and the world we live in. Her creation of innovative platforms such as The Black Women’s Psychotherapy Group, the first of its kind in London, and collaborations with brands and broadcasters such as The Tate, The National Theatre, Saatchi and Saatchi and BBC 1 Xtra has meant that Dawn is fast becoming an important voice in the therapy world. A regular BBC mental health pundit and columnist for Healthcare and Psychotherapy Journal, Dawn uses her lived experiences, both personal and professional, to promote an unorthodox approach to psychosocial issues and work within mental health.
