Language is Power: Ethical Practice of Bias-Free Language to Counteract Violence and Oppression

Language is Power: Ethical Practice of Bias-Free Language to Counteract Violence and Oppression

March 12, 2021
Online via Zoom 12-1:30 pm EST

Because language is power, how we use language to name, describe, represent, and "construct" others is a pressing concern for art therapists in counteracting violence and oppression. This workshop offers practice in examining language reflexively within the larger framework of relational ethics and empathy. Attendees will explore bias in language on race/ethnicity, gender, and disability, and construct bias-free alternatives that serve liberation.
