About our Course:
We will collectively examine the structurally embedded inequities in mental health practice and the ways in which Whiteness has become the baseline for normal human behavior. Participants should anticipate reflective questions from the facilitators to discuss and opportunities to engage collaboratively with other participants.
Meet our Facilitators:
KayeAnn Mason, LICSW is a Racial Equity Trainer, License Supervisor, Anti-Racist Practice Coach, Consultant and Psychotherapist in private clinical practice in Saint Paul, Minnesota. KayeAnn has over 35 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults struggling with the impact of living in what bell hooks calls an “imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy”. Her work integrates anti-racism, anti-oppression, social justice, intersectional and liberatory frameworks. She believes that the root of racial healing for Black and Brown bodies is grounded in raising racial consciousness and in collective multi-systemic resistance.
Tony Hudson is driven by a purpose to align people and resources to center racial consciousness and intersectional equity in relationships and collaboration.
