ESFT Socio-Cultural Power and Privilege
September 11 @ 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm$90
Conceptualizations of power and privilege have deepened over the last two decades. Therapists today understand power and privilege operate within more complex contexts. Not only is gender a context in which these forces are abused, but these forces also operate within the contexts of race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and religion. This workshop explores expressions of power and privilege within these contexts. Dialogue is essential as participants are encouraged to share their own experiences.
1) Identify at least two major contributions to theories of power and privilege in the last two decades.
2) Discuss one new idea relative to issues of power and privilege.
3) Describe how power issues shape individual psychology as well as relational structure and dynamics.
