Relational Safety and Liberating Training Spaces: An Application with a Focus on Sexual Orientation Issues
Hernandez, Pilar; Rankin, Pressley, IV
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v34 n2 p251-264 Apr 2008
This article describes and discusses a teaching case of a clinical training situation involving a gay marriage and family therapy student working with a same-sex affectional couple. The conceptual pillars of this teaching case, relational safety and liberating spaces, are advanced as illustrations of how the student developed his voice in the training process. Pivotal moments in this process are discussed, as are implications for training and personal and professional growth.
