I am so thrilled to hear from Dr. @HelenNeville12 , Dr. Bill Cross, Dr. Tiffany Yip, and Dr. Art Blume, moderated by @Dr_GigiAwad, about studying structural racism in psychology. Soaking in their brilliance! Thank you #2021apadiv45 for creating space for this content! @apadiv45 Image
.@HelenNeville12 cautions us against forgetting resilience and healing when considering structural racism, and she reminds us that this healing includes and incorporates resistance at the structural level #2021apadiv45 @apadiv45 Image
.@Dr_GigiAwad's questions are 💯
She asks the panelists how work on structural racism can inform the current national debate on critical race theory
In response, Dr. Cross urges psychologists to focus not just on pain, but on "the origins of the pain," often tied to structures that maintain economic hierarchies. "We are very good at explaining pain, but we are not so good at tracing their origins" #2021apadiv45 @apadiv45
Dr. @HelenNeville12 urges us to educate ourselves, our colleagues, our departments, our institutions about what CRT is. She says we also need to communicate to the public what CRT is all about, as Dr. @JioniLewis and Dr. @KevinCokley1 have recently done

"People are used to thinking about individuals and individual actions...structural analysis and teaching should be in all classes" -@HelenNeville12


#2021APADiv45 @apadiv45
Dr. @HelenNeville12 says "we need to learn how to tell our stories" to shed the light on structural racism and motivate social change. (she gives a s/o to @mmille27
& @OtherOnesbyLee)

Reminds me of testimonios from liberation psychology!

#2021apadiv45 @apadiv45
Dr. Art Blume broadens our perspective, saying we need to think intergenerationally when it comes to structural racism. "Five-year interventions aren't going to help us end systemic racism."

The struggle is a long one!
#2021APADiv45 @apadiv45
Dr. Tiffany Yip encourages us to learn to translate our findings into language that is not academic and that can inform policy and public opinion.

#2021apadiv45 @apadiv45
Wow, what a great plenary session this was! @Dr_GigiAwad @HelenNeville12 , Drs. Blume, Yip, and Cross brought the fire tonight!

I am loving on the #2021APADiv45 conference! I had heard how awesome this conference is, and now I know!

Tuning into this important, final plenary session of #2021apadiv45 : The Impact of COVID-19 on Communities of Color @apadiv45 Image
Starting off with the incomparable Dr. Mona Amer, founding member of @amenapsy. "How many of these stories [of COVID19 racial traumas] impact the Arab American community? We don't know, b/c Arabs are subsumed under the racial category of white." #2021apadiv45 @apadiv45 Image
Dr. Amer warns that Arab govt's deliberately underreport impact of COVID19 for political reasons. "In short, Arab bodies don't count"

Yes! True about Iran, too, sadly.
