White Dialectics as Multidimensional, Contextual, and Transformational
Abrams, Elizabeth M.; Todd, Nathan R.
Counseling Psychologist, v39 n3 p423-437 Apr 2011
This rejoinder provides a response to reactions by Ponterotto, Sue, and Toporek to the White dialectics framework presented in Todd and Abrams's article. The present response focuses on incorporating multidimensionality, the multilevel nature of context, and the potential for transformation in the White dialectics framework. The authors expand future directions for research and present a recent example of the application of the White dialectics framework to antiracist work with women from a local community.
