"Thoughts on Race & Culture"

A discussion stimulated by the WMIP Race & Culture Group

This meeting is open to the public.

The events committee is inviting members and non-members to join in a group discussion on race and culture. Please request an electronic copy of the selected paper from the Administrator at the WMIP office (email: to read in advance of the meeting. Whether or not you have read the paper, do come along and share your experience with us. Myra Connell, a WMIP member and psychoanalytic psychotherapist, will open the discussion by giving her response to the paper.

The paper referred to was originally presented by the Race and Culture group as a talk at a Monday CPD evening. Members of the group wanted to each write something short to try and make sense of their own experiences applying psychoanalytic thinking and their experiences as individuals and as a group. The group have bequeathed this paper to WMIP and we have decided to use it to start a conversation which will hopefully grow over time. This is a subject that affects the whole of society and it is more important now than ever to use some psychoanalytic thinking in order to deepen our understanding of ourselves and of the world around us.
