Mediation Clinic: Addressing Internalized Oppression and Privilege with Kim Randolph

The issues that arise around internalized oppression and its potential daily impact on us raise, in turn, many questions. These are particularly critical to those of us who mediate.
In addition, internalized oppression - whether involving class, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation - too commonly manifests itself with multiple layers of "self-hate" in people and situations that would surprise you. 
Kim's workshop will explore these important questions:

  • How does internalized oppression impact the decisions we make and the questions we ask as mediators?
  • How does it impact our style of communication and how we deal with conflict?
  • What is the relationship between internalized oppression and hate crimes?
  • Where does privilege fit into this picture?

Participants will have opportunities to discuss this topic in a deep and meaningful way. Kim will share the strategies she has developed for addressing internalized oppression.
