2021 IFS Annual Conference - Preconference Institute to Focus on Voices of Global Majority

IFS News
Widening the IFS Lens through Voices of Global Majority

On Thursday, October 14th we will open our virtual 2021 IFS Annual conference with a focus on Widening the IFS Lens Through Voices of Global Majority. 

Global Majority is a collective term that encourages us to recognize that together, those of African, Asian, Latin American, and Arab descent along with Indigenous people from around the world comprise the vast majority of people worldwide. Global Majority is not meant to be male-centric or heteronormative. Understanding this truth has the power to disrupt and reframe our conversations on race.

We will hear from:

  • Deran Young
  • Philip Butler
  • Fatimah Finney 
  • Rosa Bramble
  • Tamala Floyd
  • Carmen Jimenez - Pride
  • and more!

Topics will include: 

  • Culturally Responsive Practices in Latinx Mental Health
  • Seekr: A Panel Discussion Exploring the Use of Technology to Enhance Connection in the Client/Clinician Ecosystem
  • Playing while Black: Addressing Racial Trauma with African American Children with IFS in the Playroom

Join us for a day of expansive learning, internal reflection and connection, as we highlight the necessary work needed to confront the legacy burden of racism individually and as a collective.
