Behavioral Psych Studio for Black Lives Matter (BPS for BLM)
By Brooke Schwartz, LMSW
We at Behavioral Psych Studio are committed to dismantling white supremacy, the belief system — often unspoken and unacknowledged — that white people are rightfully the dominant group in society. In contributing to this effort, our silence is not an option. In our new series, Behavioral Psych Studio for Black Lives Matter (BPS for BLM), we will be highlighting and amplifying Black voices by sharing media covering a number of different topics, such as how to support Black peers and speaking to kids about race.
We acknowledge the privilege that comes with being white therapists and embrace the fact that we don’t have all the answers. We’re learning and listening alongside you.
Regardless of where you are on your antiracist journey — whether you are just beginning today or have been engaged for weeks, months, years, or a lifetime — we encourage you to check out Let's get to the root of racial injustice, a TEDx Talk by Megan Francis, Associate Professor at Harvard and the University of Washington and author of the award winning book, Civil Rights and the Making of the Modern American State.
Stay engaged, stay present, and stay tuned for more posts in this series.
