“After this group I feel like I have so much more work to do, but I feel a little bit more embodied. I feel a little bit more able to actually say words about it to other people, rather than stewing in my own shame.”
“It’s been so helpful to have regular contact with other white anti-racist people who are flawed humans, and who accept all of our imperfections as we press forward in dismantling white supremacy.”
“It’s done so much for me just to be able to say these things; to get honest in front of other people and receive unconditional positive regard for the parts that I expose. Every time I show up I’m teaching myself that I’m not afraid to be here and talk about it. I mean, I’m afraid, but I still show up.”
“I’m so grateful for this group. Every single time I went to one of these meetings I left feeling like it was the absolute best use of that time ever. I never wanted to come, and I was always so glad I did.”
To have any hope of transforming the racism embedded in our culture, white people need to step up and do our work. In this consultation group for white therapists, we support each other in staying somatically regulated as we turn our attention to engaging and transforming the particular ways our whiteness is showing up in our lives and work.
