Enacting Racialized Distinction: Normative Unconscious Processes in the Clinic by Lynne Layton, Ph.D.

1.5 CE Credits in Cross-Cultural Education

This presentation puts forth a relational theory of identity formation, with particular attention to the ways identities are racialized. It focuses on how we are implicated in each other’s identities and takes up the ways in which what we consciously and unconsciously disavow as “not-me” is enacted in the clinic.

1. Describe a relational theory of identity.
2. Identify the concept of normative unconscious processes and how it appears in the clinic.
3. List and analyze some of the ways racialized identities consciously and unconsciously emerge in clinical practice.

Lynne Layton, Ph.D. is Assistant Clinical Professor, Part-Time, Harvard Medical School and co-editor of the journal, Psychoanalysis, Culture & Society. She is the author of Who’s That Girl?
