      A recent series of learning circles explored power and privilege in evaluation, and the impact of structural racism on our work and the populations we work with. Joan Robinson, psychotherapist Amazon. As I read the negative reviews, I am even more aware of how difficult it is to get these ideas across without being accused of self-hatred, etc. This insight led us to identify ways we could ensure this stakeholder group was engaged in a meaningful way. At times when the client and therapist share the same minority identity, the client can engage in prejudicial behavior through their own internalized bias, racism or homophobia.

      What are the obstacles and what is being done to overcome them? Furthermore, when the client and clinician share in their majority access to social power and privilege, there can be an assumption that they also share certain prejudicial thoughts and feelings. In other words, fellow in-group members of majority races, gender identities, sexual orientations or other identity-defining populations can feel comfortable sharing their explicit bias towards various minority groups — trusting their mutual majority-affiliation has won them a certain amount of in-group comradery and understanding. For example, feminine lesbians or masculine gay men are regularly mistaken within a heteronormative society for being heterosexual.

      If you are open to the possibility that things can get better through a personal self-reflective understanding of our socio-economic location, read this book. We work with a broad range of stakeholders in our projects — foster youth, family caregivers, city staff and foundation boards. Elements of identity can be almost anything from gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religious identity, socioeconomic status and level of education. He embeds relevant and powerful historical and contemporary examples into his discussions of these concepts and accessibly acknowledges people's resistance to truly reflecting on ourselves and our own participation in patterns of indifference or oppression. Pascale tests the boundaries of sociological knowledge and offers new avenues for conceptualizing social change.
