Stepping Outside of One’s Own Culture: Therapy as a Socio-Political Practice in Australia

Merle Conyer

Sitting with Aboriginal women in Australia has revealed how culture-bound mainstream western therapeutic modalities are and the importance of giving consideration to how power is embodied and conveyed within the therapeutic relationship. This orientation is central to deconstructing inherently oppressive practices within therapeutic models, and necessary if therapeutic services are not to be used or viewed as a vehicle of domination or colonisation.
