Beyond the Session: Navigating Power and Privilege Part 1
Tuesday, August 4 5:15pm – 8:00pm
Each individual has multiple identities including but not limited to race, ethnicity, immigration status, culture, class, gender, sexuality, and ability status. These identities hold explicit and implicit meaning and influence a person’s level of power and privilege in society. A clinician’s identities – visual and hidden, named and unnamed – undoubtedly inform her/his/their theoretical orientation and therapeutic interventions. Clinicians, therefore, are encouraged to explore not only the ways in which their identities contribute to who they are and how they see the world but also how their identities impact their positionality in the context of relationships.
This session will offer clinicians the opportunity to:
- Reflect on their personal beliefs about privilege
- Locate themselves across a variety of identities
- Intra- and interpersonally explore relative privilege
