Dynamics of Power and Privilege for the Gestalt Practitioner
This group is created for practitioners who want to do case reviews based around issues of power and privilege. Contemporary Gestalt Therapy emphasizes the space between therapist and client in an embodied field, which includes the spectrum of race/sexuality/class/ability/gender/etc. These systemic issues impact the therapeutic relationship often out of awareness and can emerge in therapist and client shame, loss, confusion, and as barriers to contact.
Emily Blackmoon, Social Worker and Gestalt therapist, is offering this series of Sunday afternoon meetings as a way for GIT student therapists and graduates to receive support with cases where systemic power and privilege strongly figures in the field. The group is envisioned as an engaged pedagogical space to share and learn, and to deepen their understanding of what power they hold within the space.
