Week 3: Identity, Privilege, Power, and Oppression

Identity, Privilege, Power, and Oppression

The identities of individuals often influence the level of power they have and the level of privilege and oppression they experience. For example, individuals whose identities afford them the ability to pay for professional psychology services have the power and the privilege to choose how they improve their emotional well-being; however, underprivileged individuals who are unable to pay out of pocket for professional psychology services might have more limited options. In these examples, the socioeconomic identities of these individuals affect the level of power and privilege they experience. As a psychologist, how might your identity and the levels of privilege, power, and oppression that come with that identity influence your interaction with clients?

For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources, including the Microtraining Associates video. Then consider how identity, privilege, power, and oppression might influence professional practice. Finally, think about the challenges that identity, privilege, power, and oppression might present in a therapy session between a client and a therapist from different cultural backgrounds.

With these thoughts in mind:

Write an explanation of how identity, privilege, power, and oppression influence professional practice based on Janet Helms’s explanation in the Microtraining Associates video. Then explain the challenges that identity, privilege, power, and oppression might present in a therapy session between a client and a therapist from different cultural backgrounds.
