While there are a few short articles and guides addressing the challenges and complexities of leading white affinity groups, there has never been a detailed handbook exclusively for white racial affinity group facilitators. There are many challenges in facilitating these groups, including the need to have a deep theoretical understanding of racism, a high degree of racial self-awareness, sensitivity to and the ability to work with the range of skills and degrees of awareness participants bring, and strong facilitation and conflict-resolution skills. This book is the first in-depth guide for educators, mediators, workplace consultants and trainers, workplace diversity groups, community organizers, conference organizers, members of faith communities, and members of racial and social justice groups. Dr. Robin DiAngelo and Amy Burtaine, who collectively bring over twenty years of experience leading anti-racist education and racial affinity groups, present the following: · a theoretical framework for understanding racism; · a case for the value of racial affinity groups as a tool for challenging racism; · guidelines for setting up affinity groups in a variety of contexts; · the skills and perspectives needed for effective facilitation; · scenarios to illustrate common challenges; · a glossary of definitions; · exercises, discussion prompts, and assessment tools. · an extensive list of common patterns and group dynamics and how to address them This accessible guide is an important reference for anyone committed to anti-racism work.
