A Statement from the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas

The current racist atrocities in our society, most recently the murder of George Floyd, call upon us as psychoanalytic therapists in the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas (PCC) to turn our awareness of racism into effective action.  We must speak out about the damaging effects of racism on its perpetrators and its victims, and we must rigorously examine our own institutional practices with an openness to identifying and addressing any racism we find in our Center’s teaching, supervision, and clinical practices.
