Title: Abi Canepa-Anson – The gap between the silence and the scream – exploring the problems of racism and colour blindness in psychotherapy training
I will be addressing the impact of the trauma of racism and the problems of colour blindness in psychotherapy training. I will explore how the colonial past stays with us and continues to play a part in the minds of black and white thinking. Part of the problem I believe is located in the wider cultural phenomenon of “whiteness” which denies racialised experience in favour of a sameness. Also problematic is the internalisation of the negative stereotype of what it is to be black. I will conclude with what may facilitate the process towards embracing cultural differences in psychoanalytic training.
