relationship between a therapist and a client is inherently unbalanced in terms of power. We have engaged for many years in conscious reflection, ongoing study, and our own supervision work when necessary, exploring our feelings about societal power dynamics and remembering the societal errors of the past. We are transparent about our on race, socioeconomic background, teen pregnancy, medical costs of the elderly, sexual orientation, MAID, family configurations, and more. We believe that if we did not engage in our own critical reflection processes, we would run the risk of being uninformed/unprepared/biased about any/all diversity issues. not be consciously aware of our own positions, devalue the beliefs and perceptions of others and be unable to form a client-therapist relationship bond. We believe we are hugely responsible for and obliged to educate ourselves on diversity issues.
