Topic: Impact of Social Identity on Clinical Practice.
Write two pages of paper capturing the following topic as described below.
Awareness of difference and an understanding of the complexities of working across difference are integral to effective social work practice. Particular attention must be paid to social identity, intersectionality, and the dynamics of power and privilege. While there are areas of similarity, there are also areas of difference, both visible and invisible, that impact our work with colleagues, supervisors, and clients.
Consider your own experience with social identity and answer the following questions:
1. Which parts of your social identity are most important to you and why? Which are seen by others, and which are more hidden? Which do you consciously choose, and which are imposed on you?
2. Which parts of your social identity confer privilege?
3. What similarities and differences in social identity, intersectionality, power and privilege exist between you and your clients?
4. How will you attend to areas of social identity, intersectionality, power and privilege both with clients and in supervision?
