Cultural Diversity, Breaking Barriers, & Racist Micro Aggressions
Be an advocate and teach your families that they are advocates for each other and for themselves too. It’s really important in a lot of families if there are not a lot of role models out there, help families learn to advocate for themselves. Help families break the isolation and gain social support. If you were a family were one of the children suffered from something that the extended family turned away from or if you were different, if you were two moms or two dads, what would that be like for you? Jason, if you had the same sex partner, what would that feel like in your family today, where you work?
Jason, “How would my family feel about that?”
So they’re different, when working with you as families, we might have very different issues with the interview to help you gain that social support. It might be easier for some of you, it might be harder for some of you. Jason said there are egg shells at your school regarding homosexuality. So there might be three other men there who have partners at home but because of the climate, you don’t feel that you could even get to know them so that sense of isolation. So to help families realize that even though they are different, that you accept them. Unconditional, positive regard is really key to that, when families come to you let them know that whoever you are, you’re a family and that’s okay. Goes back to those four conditions of counseling that’s really important.
