Race, Sex & Power: The Triangle of Shame


  • UNC Friday Center Friday Center Drive Chapel Hill, NC, 27517 United States

PRESENTER: YOON IM KANE, LCSW, CGP

Race, Sex & Power is a two day, experiential training group opportunity. It is designed for therapists to grow as practitioners and leaders by learning to work powerfully and intentionally with themes of race, sex and power in their individual, couples and group therapy work. Methods will include didactic presentations and experiential group work.

The learning objectives for this experiential and didactic training include:

  • Learn to facilitate a culture of open and progressive communication between group members
  • Identify and learn techniques to work with negative feelings and displaced aggression
  • Increase comfort and exploration of themes of race, sex and power in your work with clients
  • Develop skills to create healthy discourse, vitality and aliveness in your work with clients

In this training group, we’ll look at issues of race, sex, power and shame. Members will gain here-and-now experience working with these feelings, their resistances to these feelings, and gain more experience and comfort with their own feelings of desire, attraction, shame and power.
