This training was developed to provide a forum where groups can learn skills necessary for discussing this challenging topic and for building alliances for moving forward in the struggle against racism and its impact on our professional and personal relationships. Racism of the Well-Intended has been used by health care organizations, community groups, and other professional groups to serve as a model for changing relationships between people. The design allows a great deal of interaction between participants. The skill and technique of the facilitators is utilized as participants express their opinions and beliefs about the issues presented during the program. By focusing on the solution rather than staying stuck in the problem, Racism of the Well- Intended will keep people positively motivated and moving forward.
