A little while back, Pat Ogden, PhD was talking about resentment, and she made a key distinction.
You see, there’s resentment that stems from an event that is now over. But then there’s resentment fueled by something that’s ongoing – like systemic oppression.
So how does this impact the way she works, particularly with members of marginalized communities who continue to suffer systemic injustice?
In the video below, Pat will get into why she addresses her white privilege head on with clients from marginalized communities, and share the exact language she uses – with two very important cautions. Have a listen.
Now we’d like to hear from you. What are your biggest takeaways from the video? Please let us know with a comment below.
