Abstract:

This advanced workshop addresses disparities in social privilege and their practical implications for
psychotherapists. Malin discusses core themes of her book, A Grammar of Power in Psychotherapy,
winner of the 2016 Johanna K. Tabin Prize. She posits a matrix of relative privilege that includes
four core patient therapist dynamics: similarity of privilege, privilege favoring the therapist,
privilege favoring the patient, and similarity of non-privilege.
