One of the things I am most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape is the shift related to identity, race, and privilege. In the counseling community, the awareness surrounding these social justice issues isn’t always present. I believe it’s important and vital to allow space to discuss how these issues not only impact someone’s life, but how they potentially play out in the therapeutic relationship. Allowing clients to tell their own story from lived experiences is powerful.
