PRESENTER

Monique Bowen, Ph.D. is Professor, Core Faculty and Associate Chair in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Antioch University (New England campus). Dr. Bowen maintains an appointment as Clinical Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, where she led a retrospective, chart review study of criminal competency cases involving family violence. She is a 2016 graduate of the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (Child and Adolescent Division) certificate program in school consultation. Dr. Bowen is a Division 39 member, serves as an Associate Editor for the Association of Psychology-Law Society (Division 41) Book Series, and as a reviewer for the APA journal Professional Psychology: Research and Practice. She also has written book chapters on psychotherapy as well as on trauma assessment in forensic psychological settings and has published in the peer-reviewed journals Psychoanalytic Psychology (APA) and the Journal on Infant, Child, and Adolescent Psychotherapy.

EVENT DESCRIPTION

This presentation will explore the ongoing difficulties and dilemmas everyday racism presents in psychotherapy, consultation and supervision. Next, a facilitated discussion will incorporate how and why direct engagement with strategies devised to counteract racism are necessary to foster reconciliation and repair in both same race and multiracial relationships. Attendees will be asked to share observations of racial covenants governing public and professional lives and personas, as well as to give examples of bygone-era products of racial liberalism in both public discourse and the confidential treatment scenario. Furthermore, participants will be encouraged to query their assertions of, and oppositions to, being racially literate as clinicians.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After attending this intermediate-level program, participants will be able:

1. To describe three ways psychodynamic psychotherapeutic interventions reify racial contracts and racial liberalism, often resulting in loss of empathic attunement with patients and neutralized or under-analyzed responses to enactments.

2. To identify applicable and suitable language to inform others of one’s own current racial self-awareness and level of antiracist practice.

3. To formulate how engaging in normative, prosocial behaviors impacts same race and multiracial interactions.

4. To examine and refer to the role(s) racial literacy has in the context of consultation, psychotherapy and supervisory relationships.
