  • 0 P002 New Perspectives: Ethical Standards for the 21st Century Practitioner в†’ New Perspectives on Ethics, Session 1: Comment Board 01.21.2011 14:56
    A lot of the work I do as a white therapist with inner-city HIV+ clients is with folks who often feel somewhat victimized by "the system" of health care, law enforcement, economics, etc. One of the ways that I think I've been successful with this population is by bringing up race in the beginning of our work together. After this presentation, I realize that I'm giving them permission to look at a boundary, and declaring it safe to address the relationship between us as collaborators, something that they very often are denied the opportunity to do in other health care settings. Thanks for a good conversation; next time I hope to be able to watch it live.
