Broderick Sawyer Unity Series: The Psychology of Racism – UMass News and Media Relations

Broderick Sawyer, PhD, is an activist, clinical psychologist, consultant, author, and meditation teacher in Louisville, KY. A dynamic speaker, teacher, and trainer of therapists, he specializes in helping historically oppressed populations unconditionally love themselves. He also teaches the psychology of oppression and compassion, as well as giving all people practical tools to improve their mental health hygiene and overall wellness. In addition to his training as a psychologist, he teaches using a combination of principles from Eastern philosophy, self-actualization, and liberation psychology.

During this session, Dr. Sawyer will discuss the mental and physical impact of racism, consider how our bias can implicitly and explicitly impact others, and how we can have more effective and equitable interactions with those who may differ from us.
