How To Not Be A Karen: Managing The Tensions Of AntiRacist Allyship With The D.E.A.R. Project
Therapy For Real Life Podcast welcomes clinical psychologists Danyelle Dawson, Yara Mekawi, and Natalie Watson-Singleton for a discussion of anti-racism and organizational psychology. Today’s panel co-founded The D.E.A.R. Project and recently published an article on Medium titled “How To Not Be A Karen: Managing The Tensions Of AntiRacist Allyship.” (Found here: https://bit.ly/31fqsLT ). The panelists share their perspectives on integrating research-backed therapy methods with anti-racist education and allyship. The group discusses the limitations of individual therapy and push for strategies that promote broader systemic change. Dialectical Behavior Therapy was originally developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD, who is known for adapting mindfulness concepts into her research-backed work to help individuals “build a life worth living.” Host Anna Lindberg Cedar, MPA, LCSW invites today’s guests to critique the bounds of current therapy best practices through an anti-racist lens.
