Whether or not it is acknowledged, dynamics related to power and privilege exist in the consulting room, just as they do in every other human relationship. Both clients and treatment providers have unique experiences at the intersections of their identities, and these experiences can show up by way of transference and countertransference. Clinicians have the critical responsibility of being aware of their own areas of power and privilege in the world and in their work, and must remain curious and thoughtful about how they understand their clients’ experiences and identities. This workshop discusses concepts of intersectionality and race, marginalization and oppression, and the clinical implications of these realities in the therapeutic relationship.
This workshop is offered through Kip’s Division of Gender and Sexuality.
