Platform - Decolonizing Healthcare - John Daken

  • Sunday, December 11, 2022
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Seeking assistance for mental and physical distress can be a fraught experience.  Healthcare settings feature problematic power relationship shaped by professional roles, variable access to information and money, stigma, impairments, and of course the respective social identities of the individuals involved.  Communication breaks down; mistakes are made; people are harmed.  Is it possible to deconstruct this system and from its building blocks reconstruct a more just, equitable, and truly healing environment?  “Recovering physician” and therapist John Daken will  explore this challenging topic.

This is an in-person meeting with a Zoom option.
