This course draws on post-structural theories of subjectivity and difference to critically understand how power, knowledge, and privilege normalize systems of social inequality. The course will provide human services and mental health professionals the opportunity to examine how race, culture, ethnicity, class, gender expression, sexuality, and disability impact client/helper relationships in schools and other social service agencies. Students will explore foundational building blocks for becoming anti-oppressive in their practice.
