Psycho-Spirituality and Social Justice Education

Room 713A
Description: 
This session will provide a brief and basic overview of the non-pathologizing pyscho-spirituality called Internal Family Systems (IFS), how it could help leaders better understand their inner-world, and its response to the notion of power and privilege. The IFS will be brought into dialogue with current social justice education theories to help build a foundation for why IFS can be an asset for leaders attempting to identify their often hidden and internalized social privilege, without becoming defensive or paralyzed in shame and guilt. The session will conclude with how leaders with various privileges can use IFS techniques to pursue social justice and overall personal transformation when being confronted with dynamics of power in their own lives and in their organizations.
