About this conference session

CMM has been instrumental in helping systemic therapists think about how they put their attention to social context, issues related to power and ways of changing social worlds. However, the Black Lives Matter movement after the brutal death of George Floyd brought into mainstream consciousness the importance of taking a stand against racism in all its violent forms, but also highlighted how pervasive and entrenched it is even within institutions and training bodies pledging to address it. This presentation seeks to reflect on how CMM and Liberation Psychology together, as complementary approaches, can be useful frameworks to use in the face of the challenges of anti-racist activism, if we reflect on what CMM theory and practice looks like today, post George Floyd.
