    WSSCSW & Seattle University

    What does it mean to live and do our work in a society that proclaims race to be meaningless yet is deeply divided by race? Why is racism so hard for white people to see and how does this effect our relationships with ourselves and with our clients? How can we better "see the water" that we are immersed in?

    A critically important clinical conference for all helping professionals. Weaving information, analysis, stories, and images, Robin and Deborah form an interracial facilitation team, providing framework needed to increase racial literacy in our personal and professional lives.
