Power, privilege and difference in embodied psychotherapies

In today’s complex social world, psychotherapists are increasingly called to address issues of social justice – in work with clients, in relationships with colleagues, and in broader personal and professional contexts. This special issue will gather together innovative approaches to working with embodied experiences of oppression through body, movement, and dance psychotherapy. Articles in the collection will highlight how questions of power, privilege and difference are embedded within and enacted through embodied encounters with clients and explore how therapists navigate their own social locations and identifications in the therapeutic dyad.

We invite research papers, case studies, clinical reflections, and theoretical essays that help to deepen our understanding of how the body is implicated in oppressive social dynamics and how it may also serve as an essential resource in cultivating capacities for resistance, resilience, and accountability. Contributors whose voices and perspectives have historically been under-represented in psychology are especially encouraged to submit their work.
