This workshop is designed to make feminist principles and concepts accessible to professionals providing clinical services to populations who have traditionally been “under-served,” misunderstood, and/or silenced. Literature on feminist practice has provided a conceptual understanding of inclusion, and not necessarily a practical one.
In this workshop, attendees will be provided with the tools and “permission” they need to meet clients wherever they sit, stand, and move. Attendees will also be reminded that they may need to “unlearn” some of the ways that they have been taught to work with “diverse” clients. Intersectionality will be defined, discussed and deconstructed as well.
1. Identify feminist principles
2. Compare feminist practice principles to “traditional” practice approaches
3. Discuss the aim of feminist practice in terms of reaching people who have been excluded
4. Understand the meaning and the impact of intersectionality on clients
5. Analyze the limitations of traditional feminist practice
6. List ways in which feminist principles can be utilized to “reach” clients who have been silenced
7. Apply feminist principles to current practice modalities
