Mad Studies Meeting 7 Oct 2021

  • Zoom

Service Description

Are you a Lived Experience Practitioner (LXP)? (Mad) Academic? Student? Clinician? Service User? Carer? Come and join us - Mad Studies is for everyone :-) October is Black History Month. At Mad Studies Birmingham, intersectionality - the inclusion or lack of it - is something we discuss throughout the year. However, this month, our co-facilitator Allison has chosen a book she has found inspiring: Resma Manakem’s My Grandmothers Hands, which explores racial trauma being located within both White, Black and ‘Blue’ (law enforcement) bodies. How does this idea of intergenerational trauma fit with trauma that we have experienced as people within the ‘Mad Community’?  We will discuss the introduction, as well as any insights from people who have read the book. My Grandmothers Hands is available on Amazon for £8.19, £4.99 on Kindle, however, Audible are doing an offer where people can download a FREE audio book when they sign up, so you can keep the book and then cancel the subscription within the month if you do not want to be charged: shorturl.at/cemAH This segues Anne Aiyegbusi’s ‘The White Mirror: Face to face with racism in group analysis’ which discusses the harm that can be caused by a model which centres on Whiteness as the norm for Black participants. Anne will be joining us for the discussion.
