Racist policing has a long history in the United States. From slave patrols to Jim Crow Laws and in present time with what Michelle Alexander calls “the New Jim Crow” there has been a long lineage of violence, harassment, harm and killing of Black and Brown people. Recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and Rayshard Brooks by police and the lynchings like those of Ahmed Aubery, Robert Fuller, and black and trans women Raia Milton, Dominique Rem’mie Fells and many others have spurred a call to action. These killings add to the long list of African American people who have been killed by police officers and other lynching type of killings. We can not sit back and stay blinded to these injustices. There are currently protests and demonstrations of different forms happening around the country as well as around the world. The time for change has come.

This seminar is a panel discussion on the subject of Racist Policing and how we can create change. Therapists and Educators have a particular responsibility to address and dismantle racism. Racist Policing along with systemic forms of racism is particularly traumatic for black people. As therapists and educators we have a duty to help change and dismantle the traumatic, humiliating systems that deny black and brown people of their dignity and humanity. Panelists will discuss their work, world and lived experience related to this subject.

Center for Child & Family Development Joins WISR!

The Center for Child & Family Development officially joined WISR this week. The Center has for 35 years provided children and families, particularly under-served families, with school-based family counseling services in Bay area public, private, and Catholic schools while also providing supervised training and internship opportunities for individuals training to be licensed therapists. Toni Nemia, LMFT is the Executive Director and Jacqueline Shinefield, EdD is Chair of the Advisory Board. This is an important new opportunity for WISR to collaborate with a group committed to education for social justice. The Center will be a very valuable practicum option for those WISR MFT students who wish to gain experience in school-based family counseling in the Bay Area, and an unpaid internship option for recent WISR MFT alums.
