David Van Nuys is a psychologist, market researcher, author, podcaster, and host of Shrink Rap Radio podcasts & videos - psychology & therapy.
In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, Jane Elliott devised the controversial and startling, "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise." This, now famous, exercise labels participants as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes and exposes them to the experience of being a minority. Everyone who is exposed to Jane Elliott's work, be it through a lecture, workshop, or video, is dramatically affected by it. She has biome an internationally known teacher, lecturer, diversity trainer, and recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education, exposes prejudice and bigotry for what it is, an irrational class system based upon purely arbitrary factors. And if you think this does not apply to you. . . you are in for a rude awakening. Sign up for 10% off of Shrink Rap Radio CE credits at the Zur Institute

Dr. Jorgensen writes: “I was born into a middle-class Black community in D. C. in 1941. I was part of the largest entering class of Blacks ever at Harvard in fall of 1958, served in the first Nepal group in the Peace Corps 1962-1964, and entered Social Psychology at Michigan in 1964 where I was the only Black student entering in either Psychology or Sociology that year and had only one Black student ahead of me in either department.  After obtaining my doctorate I taught at the University of California at Davis for about 35 years, chairing the African American Studies curriculum committee for almost all of that time. I have published papers on Black personality and culture, racism in social science, and African American social science thought. At 79 I am retired but still teach first year seminars at U. C. Davis, small discussion classes that pay a little research money. My preferences are Black Lives and Selected Readings in Personal Growth and Interpersonal Dynamics.” Sign up for 10% off of Shrink Rap Radio CE credits at the Zur Institute
