S1 / E5 - Dr Mandeep Kallu

Power Dynamics within Clinical Psychology

Episode Overview

In this episode, we are joined by Dr Mandeep Singh Kallu who offers his personal experience of being from a BAME background, but working in a predominately White profession. Mandeep shares his experiences of racism, misinterpretations of his actions by other professionals, and power dynamics.

“To get into these positions of power, I think part of the process is that we’ll align to these social conventions, so for example trying to speak a bit clearer, or copying the language of our peers who are mostly white. I’m trying to say to people that there is a lot of strength when you stop aligning to those social conventions”

Episode #: Series 1: Episode 5

Dr Mandeep Singh Kallu is a Clinical Psychologist with a wide range of experience in adult and child mental health services, neuropsychology, and inpatient and community settings. Mandeep currently works in an inpatient CAMHS setting.

“One of the huge things that I always think about is: I’m a very fortunate person, and I can draw upon two very distinct cultures; one of my Indian background, and one of my British background. And I think sometimes, the idea of that gets lost in the mix of how the profession of Clinical Psychology should be.”
