Spring Program Sunday, March 26, 2023—Zoom Webinar

Becoming an Antiracist Therapist: Holding space for All Racial Beings

Presenter:  Nathalie Edmond, Psy.D.


This workshop will highlight how all individuals are racial beings living in a culture that centers a certain kind of whiteness as
the standard, as the in group, creating inequitable systems and antiblackness. We will explore the legacy of white body
supremacy and developing an anti-racism lens in clinical and personal life. We will work to deconstruct therapy models that
center whiteness and how to hold space for collective rage and grief with clients and colleagues that supports healing. This
anti-racism model will take a mindfulness-based approach to invite in curiosity and embodied dialogues.


Dr. Nathalie Edmond is a licensed clinical psychologist and experienced yoga teacher.  She has been in the therapy world for
over twenty years.  She has been a clinician and/or administrator in a variety of clinical settings such as PHP/IOP, college
counseling, and community mental health.  She started her own private practice in 2015 and it grew to a group practice in
2019 called Mindful and Multicultural Counseling.  Dr. Edmond specializes in the treatment of trauma from a mind-body-
spirit approach. She is intensely trained in DBT and trained in EMDR as well as sensorimotor psychotherapy. She teaches a
doctoral class on multiculturalism and feminism. She does DEIJ (diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice) consultation with a
wide variety of organizations.

Learning Objectives:       This workshop is designed to help participants:

  1. Name three ways white body supremacy culture shows up in daily
    life and can present in the therapy room.
  2. Name three somatics of whiteness.
  3. Explain three model minority stressors.
  4. Name techniques that support the creation of healing spaces for
    racial traumas, rage, and grief.
  5. Create ongoing processes to incorporate antiracism in therapy.
