Moderator: Anton Hart, Ph.D.

Panelistsfrom 10 Instituteswill identify areas within their respective Institutes, where structural, training and interpersonal factors relevant to race and ethnicity are wittingly, or unwittingly, neglected, even as they very likely intersect with the mission of their Institutes. Cross-Institute dialogues will also be facilitated among panellists and the audience. Three questions are posed:

  • Structural

How does structural racism manifest at your Institute?

  • Training
  • In our Training Programs and Curriculums, how do the explicit and implicit rules governing who and what gets in, gets ahead, and gets out contribute to racism?
  • Interpersonal
  • How do micro-aggressions and micro-traumas occur interpersonally between us as analysts?

5. Develop specific ways to integrate anti-racism as part of the culture and values of psychoanalytic institutes
6. Develop an awareness of the complex and intersectional nature of identities and how this impacts experience within psychoanalytic institutes.
