This workshop will present a transcultural and intersectional Ego State model considering the influence of transculture and intersectional identity on self and other. The model considers the intersect and interplay between race, gender, and other cultural selves, accounting for the complexity of cultural experience and narrative. Through enquiry of cultural selves and through mapping on an Ego State Model, we can develop more insight into intersectional identity, including how privilege and oppression is manifested in self and enacted in the world, how we may reflect on and locate cultural impasse, unconscious bias, generational oppression, white privilege, othering, and power dynamics. Victoria will reflect on a dialogue with a colleague JR, where both were called to name and account for their differences.
Participants will be invited to consider their transcultural experience and locate their intersectional identity, thus accounting for power dynamics and enactment in the therapeutic dyad. This workshop follows on from the earlier workshop (though previous attendance is not necessary) giving time to exploring the Ego State model, intersectional identity and the enactment of systemic power dynamics in the therapeutic dyad.
