Feminist Mythbusting

Students participated in experiential activities of generating terms, words, phrases, stereotypes and images of how feminists are depicted and listened to a panel of five to six individuals who shared about their feminist journey. Panelists answered questions and facilitated discussion. Students received information about what research shows about individuals who are feminists and feminist identity development (e.g., most feminists do not hold "man-hating" views) and processed their reactions to these findings.

“Embodiment(s) in the Therapy Room:
(How) Clients and Therapists Negotiate the Material Body” Day Conference

Acknowledging that subjectivities (of both the clients and the therapists) are never disembodied or detached from our physicality, this conference fostered a discussion about how corporeal experiences are perceived by each member of the therapeutic relationship and influence therapeutic process. A diverse group of experts started the conference, speaking on subject matters such as transgender experiences, dis/ability, race and ethnicity, "alternative" sexualities and size/shape diversity. Speakers included Danielle Sheypuk, PhD; Griffin Hansbury, MA, LCSW; and Joanne Clark, LCSW. The second portion of the conference was dedicated to experiential breakout sessions run by the panelists. The day concluded with a discussion of the themes and experiences from the individual breakout sessions. The attendees left with an expanded understanding of their own embodiments, how they interact with their embodied clients as well as a framework for challenging and broadening clinical training and case conceptualizations.
