ISSTD Member Launches New Embodied Antiracism Training
ISSTD Member Francesca Maxime is offering a 5-week embodied antiracism online course through www.therapywisdom.com launching in October.
This course is the brain-child of Francesca and has been a year in the making. Francesca says, “In my own personal journey as a Haitian-Dominican Italian-American multiethnic woman, it was my spiritual mentor Jack Kornfield who encouraged me down the path to becoming more enlightened about racism. Since that time in 2015, I have dedicated my life to educating myself about how racism shows up in therapeutic interactions. During this journey, I unexpectedly discovered that my mindfulness and somatic training have been invaluable allies.”
This course offers a unique approach combining mindfulness, somatic awareness, working with parts, neuroscience and attachment theory to help participants along their own journey of discovery. The course will launch with a free 60 minute live antiracism webinar conversation with Francesca October on the 14th of October, with the actual course beginning October 21st. The course includes five recorded webinars with Francesca, five live Q&A webinars, and much more.
