Perspectives on Othering

From the perspective of numerous analysts, we turn our analytic focus to race, class, and culture in a yearlong series of seminars exploring the dynamics of othering. We explore how we can use the psychoanalytic ethic of personal truth and commitment to understanding split off aspects of self to examine how we turn difference into other in our clinical dyads, institutional life, and society at large.

Asian American Experience: Ethnic Identity, Racial Trauma, and White Adjacency

This course explores challenges in working with Asian American (AA) patients with traumas from (1) racism and/or (2) Asian cultural practices. It is often assumed that Asian Americans are successful in America: We will look at how this Model Minority/ White Adjacency stereotype obscures othering of Asian Americans and explore an unconscious defensive idealization of Whites and denial of anti- Asian discriminations and microaggressions.
