More about Aileen

Highlighting the concept of ‘the internal oppressor’, my work offers ways of deepening understanding of black psychological reactions to the negative impact of racism. I am the author of several book chapters and journal papers exploring themes on black/white dynamics, shame, and identity wounding, and working with issues of Difference and Diversity in the workplace. My first book The Burden of Heritage: Hauntings of Generational Trauma on Black Lives, is published by Karnac and will be out June 2022 with a current pre-order link on Amazon.
