Are you a therapist in a setting working with underserved populations? Use this mindfulness exercise and contemplation for exploring marginalization and your and others' relationship to it.
Part 1. For this exercise notice how you organize around the statements to be read. Notice that our responses may be different based on how culture has impacted us.
Part 2. In this exercise, it can be helpful to explore the parts of ourselves that resonate with dominant culture and the parts of us that have been marginalized by the dominant culture.
Post Exploration Discussion Questions:
- Share (or journal) your experience of hearing the statements.
- What do you imagine might be evoked from someone who is marginalized as they hear these statements?
