Activity: Talk, presentation, public lecture, public engagement, outreach and knowledge exchangeInvited talk


This presentation explores a number of questions from the experience of an academic, therapist and clinical supervisor. Who is wondering about what are the success measures for bringing into focus the voices from the margins into the center? Can the qualitative research method of autoethnography offer an opportunity to explore vulnerability through intersectionality and questions the therapeutic benefits of working with social expectations, institutional barriers from classroom to therapy room?
