Event:Impasse as Enactment: Shaping the Destiny of the Racial Moment
Duration:2.30 - 4pm GMT / 9.30 - 11am EST
Extra Info:Narendra Keval with Zack Eleftheriadou

In this five-part series we will explore why, with some clients, the therapy ‘gets stuck’.

Whilst it is in the nature of our clinical work that we will experience moments of impasse, these difficulties can become challenging to think about when they take the shape of a racialised moment. The different kinds of emotional predicaments and pressures they create makes it particularly difficult to listen with curiosity to some of the relational dangers associated with racial difference conveyed by the patient. Such moments can however become the place where the most crucial work can happen if it is possible to remain receptive enough to be emotionally affected but not infected to continue thinking, potentially shaping the destiny of the moment.
