Examining Discourse When Talking with Women— Shona Russell

$5.50

This paper discusses the ongoing responsibility we have as therapists for opening spaces to examine cultural and social conditions that can easily remain invisible.

The author asks: ‘How can I step outside my own ideology and question it’, and ‘What steps can I take to expand the range of discourses which are brought into therapeutic conversations?’ A postmodern feminist orientation is discussed as a way to examine and explore the dominant discourses which are powerfully shaping of identity. Through the story of Rosanna’s life we see how these explorations are linked with re-authoring conversations.
