The Stories We Tell Ourselves with Eugene Ellis

Presenter

Eugene Ellis

Eugene Ellis is a psychotherapist, writer and public speaker on issues of race, difference and intersectionality. He is also an Honorary Fellow of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. For the past 20 years, Eugene has been the director and founder of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network, the UK’s largest independent organisation to specialise in working therapeutically with Black, African, Caribbean and South Asian people.

His book, ‘The Race Conversation: An essential guide to creating life-changing dialogue’ (2021), explores the race construct both through its cognitive and historical development and also, more crucially, on the intergenerational, non-verbal communication of race, both as a means of social control and as an essential part of navigating oppressive patterns.
