How Race Wars are Destroying Psychoanalysis

Prof. Jon Mills continues to critique the critical social justice ideology that is destroying the field of psychoanalysis based on identity politics. In this video he examines two major highly partisan and prejudicial studies on race and psychoanalysis that were commissioned by the Division 39 of the American Psychological Association (APA) on BIPOC members experiences and the Holmes Commission Reports sponsored by the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA).
