Racism Reflection Assignment: Understanding Your Place in the Reality of Racism Summary- Key Influences: 1. Family Upbringing – 2. Schooling and Education 3. Mass Media 4. Peer Relations The influence that has made the biggest impact on me is? Oppression and Discrimination- the exercise of authority or power in a  burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner.  Analysis of Oppression Critical Consciousness- learning to perceive social, political, and economic oppression and to take action against the oppressive elements of society. Developing this is a two-step process that involves learning to perceive social, political, and economic contradictions and taking action against oppression elements. It is a process through which people come to an understanding of power, empowerment, and oppression. 1. Approach every interpersonal helping practice relationship with an awareness of who you are as a cultural self and what you have to offer as a helping person. 2. Equalize the power relationship between you as the professional worker and the client as the vulnerable individual so that you both become persons in the eyes of another. 3. Find out what is similar and common between you as the worker and the person as the client and affirm the similarities and commonalities. 4. Explore the differences between the worker and the client, respecting and learning from them, and incorporate these unique features in the relationship. 5. Address the multiple identities of the client and relate them to your multiple identities as the worker, understanding where they came from and how they are formed in the beings of two people. 6. Understand and respect how each of you constructed and shaped your multiple identities and how this sense of self work each for you. Draw a timeline showing how social, political, and historical forces have had an impact on your ethnic group, your family, and yourself and have caused you to be who you are today. 7. Critically examine the client’s social environment (family, friends, school/work, and community) and its effect on the person and on the helping relationship. Positionality - is the continuous discovery and rediscovery of your place in life and how you want to position yourself in relation to self and significant others.  An inward process of self-examination and self-exploration and an outward process of understanding and situating one’s self in the world  A dialogue between thinking and action, knowledge and experience, where there is a joining of critical reflection and an engagement that leads to involvement and commitment.  A different position involving a different standpoint from which one develops a level of awareness about ones social location.  A connection between positionality and worldview. 1. How would you answer the following: Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I? Where am I going? 2. Share a conversation you recently had with yourself about an important issue related to a major decision you made (e.g., a dialogue of thinking and action, knowledge and experience, reflection and engagement). 3. In thinking about where you are and where you are going, have you ever gotten a different and new perspective about your life that has caused you to make a major change in a new direction? If you have, describe the incident. If you have not, explain why this has not happen. How would you connect where you are in your life with your view of the world Intersectionality - is those multiple intersections and crossroads in our lives that are replete with multiple social group memberships that are interconnected and interrelated.
