Decolonial, liberatory, intersectional feminist therapy: The next step on the path (August 2021-August 2022, On-Demand)

Posted by & filed under recorded, video.

Feminist therapy has, in essence, argued that the entire project of psychotherapy was colonized  and corrupt from its inception. The collusion of the “founding fathers” of western psychotherapy  with both overt and covert moves by governments to control the behaviors of marginalized  persons, as well as reinforce dangerous false narrative of toxic masculinity, are core… Read more »

Why psychology must pay attention to trauma

Cultural competence in trauma treatment

Posted by & filed under recorded, video.

This on-line video course describes a paradigm for culturally competent psychotherapy practice, and its integration into work with survivors of psychological trauma.

Feminist Therapy over time

This DVD is a revealing and true-to-life portrait of how I practice feminist therapy. It’s a good teaching video for classes on feminist therapy, and also on psychotherapy skills in general.

Working with men survivors of trauma and abuse

Posted by & filed under recorded, video.

It can be a challenge to illustrate an approach to therapy in one session, but this video does a nice job of showing how narratives of masculinity affect experiences of a male survivor of childhood maltreatment. Includes a voice-over in which I explain and critique my own work, and some post-session analysis of how and… Read more »

Working with women survivors of trauma and abuse

Posted by & filed under recorded, video.

This video of a one-session therapy with a volunteer client (not an actor) probably comes closer to showing what happens in my office most days than any of my other recorded work. It’s a nice example of feminist principles of empowerment in action, and demonstrates how feminist analysis of gender informs and strengthens trauma treatment…. Read more »

Feminist couples therapy

Posted by & filed under recorded, video.

This is the video of a lecture and demonstration that I was invited to give on working with same sex couples. Imagine my surprise when the couple who were recruited for the demonstration turned out to be heterosexual. I had a chance to model therapist flexibility, and the session turned out to be a nice… Read more »

Feminist Therapy

Posted by & filed under recorded, video.

This session, with an actor playing the client, is from APA’s initial efforts to create a video series. Even though the “client’s” story is not her own, we were able to generate some emotionally truthful work, and I had a chance to show the basic principles of Feminist Therapy. You’ll get a better idea of… Read more »
