Antiracism for Therapists

For therapists, bodyworkers and people working in communities which recognise trauma Shirley Turcotte a First Nations Canadian Aboriginal Psychotherapist explains her work bringing Focusing and the ‘felt sense’ to her community. She uses a ‘land-based’ approach which in western terms, might be eco-psychotherapy. As a Focusing Teacher and Trainer, I think this approach is essential for our Therapeutic Communities here in Aotearoa and that there are ways of doing this through Systemic Constellations which enable non-indigenous people like myself to practice without being culturally appropriative.  

I’d love to hear from Therapists and Community organisers here who are working with these values and principles to align most helpfully with your work.
