Cultural Identity Development
“I taught my students that there were 1,000 people sitting in their seat with them, collected over their lifetime from family, friends, enemies, and fantasies to constitute their own personal-cultural context.

both pain and pleasure are essential in the search for meaning.”

Hoare (pp. 51-52): “Helping professionals must understand that the person must first have a firm sense of self before he or she can move to an inclusive and relational identity…all humans may possess the seeds of

is a theoretical framework for understanding how multiple social identities such as race, gender, sexual orientation, SES, and disability intersect at the micro level of individual experience to reflect interlocking systems of privilege and oppression (i.e., racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism) at the macro socialstructural level.
