Creating Connection Through Empathy: Working with the Intersection of Identities in the Group Process

Kathleen Isaac, PhD, CGP

In a time of overwhelming uncertainty, socio-political crisis, and isolation, people are craving connection and have the opportunity to do so through group. Many individuals have struggled to access these positive benefits of group, however, particularly those with marginalized identities. How do we create a group environment that invites the entirety of one’s experience including the parts of themselves that are othered and discriminated against? This workshop will illustrate how to use empathy and principles of liberation psychology to work with trauma and integrate the intersections of race, sexual orientation and gender identity into the group process. Using clinical examples, she will demonstrate how clinicians can foster connection through healthy attachment and exploration of differences.
