Article: Just Therapy and poor families. Charles Waldegrave (New Zealand)

About this Session

Taimalieutu KiwiTamasese

Many therapists when referring to particular stresses poor families face, would probably still annunciate a list that would be characterised by the following sorts of problems: inadequacies in communication; the loss of emotional warmth; tensions in relationships; an inability to make decisions; and difficulties resolving conflict.  Community workers on the other hand, would be more likely to refer to an alternative list of problems, like: poverty; bad housing; inadequate financial resources; ongoing racist experiences; ongoing sexist experiences; and ongoing hetero-sexist experiences, for example.

New Zealand’s Just Therapy Team’s Charles Waldegrave writes another highly influential article on Just Therapy and poor families (2005)
