Fostering Children’s Resilience in the Face of Racial Hatred and Prejudice with Marsha Levy-Warren at CFS Venue Change

Fostering Children’s Resilience in the Face of Racial Hatred and Prejudice: A Psychoanalytic Developmental Perspective
One-Session Program (2 Contact Hours)
Presenter: Marsha Levy-Warren, PhD
Discussant: Kirkland Vaughans, PhD
Date: Tuesday, June 27, 2017
Time: 8:00-10:00pm
Location: Mt. Sinai, Hess Seminar Room A, 1470 Madison Ave, 2nd Fl., NYC

The topic of this presentation – the impact of growing up feeling hated – has become even more salient and painful in a political and social climate in which there are increased outlets for voices of bigotry and prejudice. What are we to tell children who are observably “of color?” How do we explain to them that there are people who will react to them on the basis of the most superficial of characteristics – e.g., skin tone, hair, body type or shape, manner of dress, and name. How do we do this in a manner that is attuned to their developmental level of understanding? How do we inculcate a sense of pride, security, and trust in children when there is so much in the world around them that conveys reasons to be frightened, wary, and self-doubting?

“Rather than enduring a surfeit of expertise, we are awash in multiple, conflicting, irreconcilable opinions. Unable ever fully to determine which is right, we have to decide for ourselves. Algorithms and data render social science obsolete. Power is backed by neither authority nor knowledge, appearing and manifesting instead as violence. Therapy offers neither justice nor cure. Militarized policing… takes the place of the former; a wide array of pharmaceuticals takes the place of the latter, and when these fail there is depression, incapacity, addiction, and suicide…. Aggressive impulses need not be repressed under a veneer of cheerfulness. In the extreme inequality of Read the rest of this post »
