A discussion on the relationship between race, imperialism and psychotherapy
About this Event
Mental Health Workers’ Inquiry (MHWI) are a new group of workers organising in and beyond the mental health services sector. Together, we aim to increase our understanding of the nature of work and ownership, as well as to explore clinical approaches that foreground anti-capitalism and anti-imperialism. Our primary purpose is to develop ways of marrying member-led trade union organising with innovative financial vehicles to transform our current workplaces from within. In addition to creating new institutions, we propose radically to re-imagine those that already exist.
This discussion will focus on the relationship between race, imperialism and psychotherapy, exploring both the oppressive legacy of the clinic and how its contradictions can lead to a transformative and liberatory practice.

Mad in America and East Side Institute Virtual Town Hall Meeting: CREATING OUR MENTAL HEALTH w/ Hugh Polk, MD, Rachel Mickenberg, LCSW and Their Clients
October 4, 2020 –
What is mental health? And what does creativity have to do with it? Two psychotherapists, Hugh Polk and Rachel Mickenberg, share the effectiveness of social therapy as a psychotherapy in which they and their clients together create emotional growth and health—regardless of psychiatric diagnosis or presenting problem. In this webinar, Hugh and Rachel will introduce the ABCs of social therapy and how it is practiced in ongoing weekly therapy and community workshops of diverse groupings of people. After that, four of their clients will join them to talk about their own adventures in creating their mental health and growing emotionally through social therapy. Webinar participants will be invited to take part in the conversation. Please join us!
