This is the latest instalment in the series of seminars on Decolonising Psychoanalysis, organised by the Race and Culture Committee of the Guild of Psychotherapists.

In this highly personal talk, first given for the Freud Museum in October 2020, Ivan Ward uses his own experience and that of others to show how psychoanalytic theories can help us understand the significant psychological effects of low-level ‘everyday’ racism in white-majority societies. A shorter version of the talk is available on the Tavistock Clinic YouTube channel, but this will be the last public presentation of a full and updated text, with additional theoretical comments and a new section on ‘affective injustice’.
For further event details, speakers' biographies and booking options please see the Event Listing.

Bursaries available for those who would not be able to attend without financial support.

CPD certificates available on request.

Organised by the Race and Culture Committee of the Guild of Psychotherapists, London.
