Session 5: September 10, 2021
This series of 5 virtual workshop sessions will provide a year-long exploration of issues related to diversity, inclusion and equity for the Department of Psychiatry at Brigham and Women's Hospital. VISIONS consultants will introduce a framework for understanding how race and gender microaggressions in clinical and department interactions have the potential to maintain structural inequalities. Sessions will offer guidelines for creating safety and candor in conversations across lines of difference, invite participants to articulate the diversity, inclusion and equity issues they hope to address throughout the year, and explore how the Modern “Isms” framework can be helpful in addressing subtle - often unintentional - expressions of discrimination and their impacts.
This activity is intended for LCSWs/LICSWs, MDs, PhDs, residents, fellows, other clinical staff as well as administrative staff who interface with diverse patient populations in a variety of therapeutic settings.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Discuss and understand call-in and call-out culture--using privilege for justice.
- Examine the emotional burden of calling-in for persons from historically devalued groups
- Review ways to use multiple identities and modern ‘ism behaviors to find opportunities for meaningful alliance
- Assess supports and hindrances for participants and the Department of Psychiatry to continue personal and systems change.
