Traditionally our pedagogy does not include anti-oppressive language and Leaders and Psychotherapists do not learn how to rid our practices of power and privilege. This is a way of thinking that we have to actively apply to our modalities and methods. We will learn how to define anti-oppression for ourselves and delve into ways to integrate strategies into our programming for staff, coworkers, and clients.
