particularly for counsellors, but also for anyone who wants to dive deeper into what’s going on underneath the ideas of race and ‘the race conversation’.
A quick summary
This is such a powerful book – written with a counsellor’s insight, looking at the history of the race construct and its present day impact on the mind and body of everyone. Eugene Ellis, psychotherapist and Founder and Director of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN) also offers a counsellor’s way forward – a real conversation, in which we can become conscious of the discomfort and distress, and can bear to face these difficult feelings in order to move forward. The Race Conversation is full of compassion, nuance and active hope, and offers a real route to dismantling racism and creating a better, healthier society for all.
