Upcoming Gender, Power, and Global Social Justice: The Healing Power of Psychotherapy

This presentation is based on a book of the same title written by the presenter, analyzing how practitioners can use psychotherapy as a healing mechanism, focusing on the intersection of gender, power, and social justice within the global context. The concept of social justice is examined before examining men’s and women’s issues from biological, sociological, contextual, and ecological perspectives. The presentation covers individual, couple, and family therapy and training and supervising for heterosexual and homosexual individuals from a social justice standpoint.

Learning Objectives:

  • To apply concepts to privilege client voices and promote justice in gendered relationships
  • To apply concepts to manage the impact of socio-political issues in therapeutic practices
  • To engage the audience to think globally and view all family relationships from a global social justice lens
