Not Knowing but Learning about Racism

Event overview

A Thinking Space Special Event

Guest Speaker: Julian Lousada, Psychoanalyst

Racism is a toxic and corrosive part of our society. Whilst we need to consider how we understand it politically, we must also examine ourselves. Neither of these tasks are easy.

In this presentation Julian will share two examples from his experience and his objective will be to illustrate that without a willingness to learn from those with whom we work, we are in danger of becoming more concerned with being ‘correct” than with the reality of the pain associated with engaging with difference.

Julian Lousada is a psychoanalyst in private practice, previously Clinical Director of the Adult Department at the Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust and Former Chair of the BPC.

Julian has Directed and been on staff in many Group Relations conferences nationally and internationally. He has a special interest in groups and organisations and is a founding partner in People in Systems. With Andrew Cooper he co-authored Borderline Welfare: Feeling and the fear of feeling in modern welfare. Julian was originally a Psychiatric Social worker and taught in various university social work schools.
