Class Matters: Exploring the Impact of Class on our Therapeutic Practice (co-sponsored with MIP and PCFINE)

Knowingly or not, issues of class can influence psychotherapy and therapeutic relationships. Where we practice and whom we treat, for example, as well as decisions about health insurance and fees often reflect the influence of class. Discomfort about social class may emerge when working with those from different economic backgrounds—whether from more privileged or less privileged. Trainers Annie Hamilton and Joanie Parker, members of Class Action, a nationally recognized social change organization committed to raising consciousness about class and developing ways to address classism, will lead us through lectures, interactive activities, personal reflection, and small group sharing to develop a more nuanced and informed position about issues of class, classism, and social inequality.
