This course has two components: a one-day conference followed by three weeks of online dialogue. The one-day conference brings together two authors of acclaimed books who provide refreshing insight into the invisible dynamics that negatively impact women in their personal, professional, and organizational relationships.
Dr. Barbara Wallace presents an intensive two-hour teach-in on the nature of invisible covert violence, her Psychology of Oppression, Liberation, and Identity Development, and approach to forging equity in health for all within a new 21st century social justice and civil rights movement. Dr. Robin Stern then presents a second intensive two-hour teach-in on the nature of the gaslight effect (i.e., loss of trust in one's ability to perceive and interpret reality), teaching how to identify the hidden manipulation others use to control the lives of women and related coping and survival strategies. A final three-hour conference session provides participants with an opportunity to engage in an in-depth dialogue.
Participants complete assigned readings and engage in 2 hours of online dialogue per week over three additional weeks.
This course is ideal for women working in various organizational settings, or those seeking to assist women in achieving equity in their relationships. Business and other academic and organizational settings are strongly encouraged to have groups of participants benefit from the day of training either at Teachers College or as a distance learning opportunity in a properly-equipped teleconference facility
