Winnipeg Narrative Therapy presents Julie Tilsen (Vancouver BC) & David Nylund (Sacramento, CA)
Winnipeg, November 19th and 20th 2007

Beyond “Diversity�: Queering Your Practice for Social Justice

Taking the somewhat queer position that therapy is a political act where stories of resistance can be found and brought forward, Julie and Dave invite participants to examine issues of power and privilege that serve as the under girding of systems of oppression. In this experiential and practice-based workshop, participants will explore issues of oppression that cut across various social locations. Consideration for intersectionality and a focus on how these systems of dominance impact our work will be emphasized.

Productive investigation of our own initiation into dominant ideas about race, class, sex and gender, conceptual foundations that are just and ethical, and clinical skills that are responsive to client preferences will be discussed and demonstrated. Self-reflection, theory, and application will be combined as we examine work with queer clients from a social justice and critical multicultural framework. Drawing from current thinking in the areas of critical multiculturalism, post-colonial and queer theory, we examine the dilemmas and possibilities that emerge when identity is constructed based on gender and sexuality.
