    Intersectionality and Therapy: translating language into action

    Presenter: Casey Skeide, BA


    Description:

    Classism, racism, sexism, and cultural elitism define and marginalize systems implicitly, while oppressive political systems explicitly disenfranchise and stymie individuals. In an age where identities are often reduced to one dimension and become contingent on buzz language, the role of the therapist within the fabric of American society has come into question now more than it has ever in the past. Ethics and morality, duty and freedom are a sampling of topics that have come into question for therapists of marginalized identities who are confronted by clients whose identities appear in direct opposition to their own. 


    This discussion is geared towards understanding the role of personal identity and the interdisciplinary mental health professional identity, as well as what happens when the two collide with the identities of our clients.


    Objectives:


    1. Discuss the importance of the feminist and human rights based concepts of postmodern therapy in advocating for social change, within and outside of therapy.
    2. Discuss the importance of sociopolitical factors within the lives of our clients and how they intersect with our own


    About the Presenter A Marriage and Family Therapy Master's Candidate at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, Casey specializes in Dysfunctions of Identity, Gender and Sexuality, as well as the application of Existential and Narrative Psychotherapies. With a background in Community Organizing, Sociolinguistics and Asian Studies, Casey is inspired by the abilities of story telling and language as a means to construct and empower. Casey is clinical practicum student at Carver County's Anicca: Adolescent Day Treatment Program. Casey is also the Director of the Student Collaborative Committee and Student  representative for MAMFT.

    RECLAIM’S  5th  ANNUAL BRUNCH

    Come celebrate RECLAIM’s accessible healing work with queer and trans youth and families! Enjoy a fantastic brunch by Chowgirls Killer Catering, music and poetry, a silent auction, and crafts for kids and the young at heart.

    Saturday, February 24th, 2018

    10 am – 1 pm | Solar Arts Building | 711 15th Ave NE, Minneapolis

    RECLAIM is the only financially and culturally accessible queer and trans youth specific mental health resource in the region. We offer life changing therapy for youth and families, develop trans competent practitioners, and partner in community at the intersection of gender and racial justice. Almost 90% of RECLAIM’s clients are trans youth, ages 13-26. We have seen a dramatic rise in youth having experienced harassment and self-harm when they arrive at RECLAIM as new clients. We attribute this in part to messages of intolerance from our highest elected officials and the removal of legal protections for trans people. We have also seen that trans and queer youth are resilient when they and their families get the support they need. Please help RECLAIM continue to grow to meet this need!

    The Celebrate the Love Brunch is a great time to introduce family, friends, and colleagues to RECLAIM’s work. You can choose to sponsor the table and treat your table to brunch, or sponsor the table and collect ticket payments from those who join you. Either way, a portion of your table hosting will be tax deductible.
