This is the second VAPS offering of an informal discussion group via Zoom for members of the mental health community who would like the opportunity to talk to each other about the impact of recent traumatic racial events (police killings of persons of color, protests and riots), on themselves, their clients, and their work as analysts and psychotherapists. This group will have a more specific focus generated by our first group discussion. We hope you will join us! Attending the first group discussion is not a requirement for joining this second group. For more information and to register please click on the event on our Events page!
