Systemic Racism and Social Justice

  • Does power corrupt? Where does compassion come from? And do positive or negative emotions serve as the basis for our true nature? Today Forrest and I are exploring these questions with the help of a world-class expert on emotion, power, and morality: Dr. Dacher Keltner from UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center.

  • We're all subject to forms of bias and prejudice. On this episode, Forrest and I are joined by Dr. Jack Glaser, Professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, to explore intergroup bias and racial prejudice. This includes what we can do to overcome our innate tendencies, and treat people more equitably.

  • How have children experienced this year's challenges, and how can we get better at talking with them about race and racism? Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith joins Forrest to explore trauma, resilience, and effective coping, and particularly the unique challenges experienced by young people and their parents.

  • What can we do to combat, unlearn, and ultimately unburden ourselves from the influence of systemic structures of racism? This week, Erin Trent Johnson joins us to explore this powerful question.

  • Today we’re exploring how the traumatic past, including that handed down through the generations, can influence our lives today

  • Racism and racist structures place an enormous mental health burden on the people they persecute. Dr. Alfiee, a wonderful psychologist, researcher, and expert in the mental health needs of racially diverse adolescents, young adults and families, joins Forrest for this week’s episode of Being Well.
