Many clinicians are unaware of their own identity and how it impacts their clinical work. This module will focus on a foundational understanding of power differentials, and how they can play out in the therapy process. This module will also focus on developing a sense of a clinician’s own identity, and how it can shape a sense of self, and a sense of self as a clinician. Additionally, participants will learn tools for assessing the impact of systemic privilege (or lack thereof). This interactive session will invite participants to become increasingly aware of their own privileges and biases, as well as current systemic structures that reinforce power imbalances. Most importantly, this training will help participants identify, clarify, manage, and hold the tensions of power imbalances in clinical practice.

Goals for the Workshop

Upon conclusion of the discussion, participants will be able to:

  • Define concepts related to systemic power and privilege, microaggressions and insidious trauma
  • Increase awareness of personal identity, biases and privileges
  • Identify and discuss common themes of microaggressions
  • Discuss how power and privilege imbalances impact individual, couples, and family therapy
  • Discuss opportunities and tools for acknowledging power and privilege imbalances and microaggressions in clinical practice
