Transcript of Cultural Identity Development

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. By defining culture broadly, it is clear that all counseling is multicultural. If the counselor thinks there are only two people in that room, then the counselor is already in serious trouble.”
- Paul Pedersen
'Would it be all right by you
If I "degreenify" you?'
But of course that's not important to me

This Changes Everything...
“Gilligan and other relational psychologists are not talking about gender differences they think are essential. They are talking about gender differences they think are systemic, inculcated by socialization for political ends.” (p.30) -

Stereotype Threat
“The erroneous belief that all Asians are the same, all Blacks are the same, all Hispanics are the same, or all American Indians are the same has led to numerous therapeutic problems (Sue & Sue, p. 207).”
Racial-Cultural Identity Theories
Intersectionality & Life Spaces
“The rules (of counseling) are changing. The old rules presented counseling as a way to achieve dissonance reduction in one’s life by making difficult situations simpler.
The new rules favor tolerance of ambiguity.
The old rules were ‘one-directional’, aimed at making people feel more pleasure and less pain. The new rules are ‘two-directional’, recognizing that
both pain and pleasure are essential in the search for meaning.”
Paul Pedersen

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
, of prejudice against dissimilar groups and values.”
