The Neuroscience of White Fragility
January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PSTCost: $20.00
About the Event
When we have privilege, and someone tells us that the system we are a part of is causing harm, we often respond with dismissal, denial, counterattack and defensiveness. And since one of the systems within which we live in the Global North is a prioritization of white bodied people around almost every resource, when white people are told about their participation in white supremacy, we run into the defensive response that we call “white fragility.”
Join Sarah to explore the research around privilege and defensiveness, and take away self-compassion and resources to be able to participate more fully in anti-racism.
- This is an online zoom webinar that runs for 90 minutes with an optional 30 min Q&A.
- Purchase includes invitation to the live webinar and post-webinar access to access the recording + slides, including research citations when relevant.
- This webinar is the January meeting of Sarah’s 2021 Neuroscience and Resonance monthly series.
