The Challenge of Racism in Therapeutic Practice
Inspired and informed by the author’s own research, this uniquely engaging textbook brings the focus to how racism affects the therapeutic relationship, creatively exploring the subject of working with people of African, Caribbean, Asian and Mixed heritage in both therapeutic practice and clinical supervision.
Unpacking the latest concepts and theories, and offering a wealth of real-life stories and examples, the author reflects, with a voice of empathy and understanding, on how the challenge of everyday racism, as well as the enduring, intergenerational pain caused by historical racism, can affect the therapeutic dynamic, and how practitioners can deliver a truly inclusive therapeutic service that tackles these issues sensitively.
A very engaging book, which comprehensively covers many of the issues around anti-racism and anti-discriminatory practice in counselling and psychotherapy. Unlike other writers, Dr McKenzie-Mavinga has taken these issues seriously enough to draw attention to the matter of breach of ethical codes. The book is a leader in its field. - Lennox K. Thomas, Consultant Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, Senior Member of the British Psychotherapy Foundation, UK The Challenge of Racism in Therapeutic Practice is a much-needed resource for the psychotherapy profession. This book challenges us to critically reflect on and keep alive issues of racism, and to undertake responsibility for dialogue. - Dr Harbrinder Dhillon-Stevens, Registered Counselling Psychologist & Psychotherapist, HDS Psychological Services Ltd, UK
