  • Creating 'LGBT-Affirmative Therapists': Critical Reflections on The New Psychotherapy of Sexual Orie

    Tuesday, April 21, 2015

    3:00 PM-4:30 PM

    DISQUE 109

    • Everyone

    Since the declassification of homosexuality as a mental illness in 1973, psychology has transformed the way it approaches sexual orientation and gender identity issues in scientific research and clinical practice. The paradigmatic shift from psychopathology to identity has corresponded with the introduction of “LGBT-affirmative therapy,” which suggests that therapists should affirm clients’ sexual orientations rather than reinforce sexual minorities’ experiences of stigma and marginalization. And though the academic literature on LGBT-affirmative therapy is proliferating, there remains little consensus on what exactly this means conceptually and what it looks like in practice. This interdisciplinary research explores psychology’s ongoing project of both producing what constitutes LGBT issues and the practices used to treat them therapeutically. Based on analysis of over 2,000 minutes of recently produced psychotherapy training videos, I will explore what these films suggest an LGBT-affirmative psychotherapist looks like: what does she know, what does she (not) do, and how is her approach any different from therapy-as-usual? In the complex space where science, culture, beliefs, and attitudes about sexual orientation, gender, and other dimensions of identity collide, what is the new psychotherapy of sexual orientation?

    The Student Center for Inclusion and Culture is excited to announce that Bryan Stevenson, M.P.P, J.D. will be the inaugural speaker of the Power of inclusion speaker series. This event is Sponsored by: Africana Studies program, Criminology and Justice Studies, English Language Center, Lindy Center for Civic Engagement & the Office of international programs
     
    Bryan Stevenson’s work is shaped by the idea of a shared humanity or the idea that “we can’t be full human beings until we care about human rights and dignity for everyone.” He believes that the opposite of poverty is justice and that the U.S. justice system is rife with racism and income inequality. He thinks that the U.S. is unique in its mass incarceration system as well as its cultural inability to address the important issues of race and inequality that are pervasive in our society. The work that he has done on these topics is at once heartbreaking and inspiring and it is our hope that the Drexel community will be motivated to further discussion and action on these important topics.

    Stevenson’s New Book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption talks about defending some of America’s most rejected and marginalized people. The stories he tells are heartbreaking, yet inspiring and motivate audiences to make a change.

    Stevenson is the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), an organization that works to maintain the civil rights of incarcerated populations. EJI focuses on reducing the number of children in adult prisons, combatting the extensive use of the death penalty, reforming prisons and sentencing and addressing the relationship between race and poverty. EJI meets these goals through providing legal representation to defendants and prisoners who have been denied fair and just treatment in the legal system as well as engaging in advocacy and influencing policy. In addition to his work with EJI, Stevenson is a professor of clinical law at New York University School of Law. He graduated in 1985 from Harvard University with a masters in public policy and a law degree. After graduating he worked as staff attorney with the Southern Center for Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia. He founded EJI in 1989 and has since worked to reverse death penalties for many prisoners as well as provide representation for the poor and others whose trials were marked by racial bias.   Stevenson has been the recipient of many awards including the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award in 1995 and the Gruber Prize for Justice in 2009.
