Relational Ethics in the Time of Global Uprising: De-Centering White Privilege in our Discipline and Practice
Presented by Amy DiGennaro, MFA, MA, ATR, LMFT+
A conversation on Relational Ethics between five longtime colleagues and friends who have deep experience with the Narrative Therapy worldview and practices (not a curated “panel of experts”). Tzu-Ping Cheng, Amy DiGennaro, Josh Mark, and Matt Mooney have been talking together for years, often weekly, to share experiences, consult, and strengthen their commitment to and practice of therapeutic conversations that stand up to oppression and marginalization. The self-named “Tiny Narrative Group” come together here to talk about relational ethics, in contrast to traditional/legal ethics and how relational ethics is a justice-doing mindset that contributes to the work of de-centering whiteness/white supremacy, and standing up to oppressive/marginalizing practices implicit and invisibilized in traditional/dominant discourses of “professionalism” and ethics.
