Dr. Camisha Sibblis on “The Ubiquity of the Carceral in Black Life: Anti-Black Racism and the Law”
When: Thursday, June 10th from 12pm - 1:30pm ET
Legal developments pertaining to the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in the U.S. as well as the brutal beating of Defonte Miller and death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet in Canada have reinvigorated the Black Lives Matter movement and have sparked new discussions about the prevalence of anti-Black racism within police services and the criminal justice system. This webinar will explore issues of anti-Black racism, particularly as it relates to the law and its implications on Black life in Canada and mental health. Using a reflexive and participatory approach, participants will come away with a developing understanding of the ubiquitous nature of carcerality in the lives of Black people, inter-generational trauma, and community pathology.
This presentation will be useful to psychotherapists, counselors, professional coaches, psychologists and psychological associates, social workers, mental health professionals, probation and parole officers, criminal lawyers, and/or anyone interested in mental health.
