EXPLORATION IN PRIVILEGE, OPPRESSION AND DIVERSITY features mental health practitioners' and faculty members' personal stories of people becoming aware of their own privilege and discovering what it means to become an ally and show personal compassion to those who are different and discriminated against because of that difference. In acknowledgement of the challenging process of self-explorations to which all practitioners must submit themselves, Anderson and Middleton conceived a realistic text that educates practitioners and students on matters of privilege, oppression, and diversity and illuminates their impact on work with clients, colleagues, students, and associates. Each reading is meant to prompt readers into a self reflective process that could relate to practice implications and direct application of the issue raised, while discussion questions at the end of each story provide readers with an excellent opportunity to process these issues on a personal level. By studying the true stories that reveal these professionals' insights and understanding, readers learn how to recognize, struggle with, and accept their own privilege and thus become stronger, more effective practitioners.
