Antiracism as an ethical imperative: An example from feminist therapy

Ethics and Behavior 1 (2):113 – 127 (1991)
Abstract
This article presents a conceptual framework within feminist therapy theory for viewing overt and covert racist behaviors as forms of unethical action. Using the personal as theoretical and political, the author traces her process of having her consciousness raised regarding the issue of racism in psychotherapy. Racism is then conceptualized as an ethics problem in terms of lack of mutuality and respect, violation of boundaries, and unethical imbalance of power in the therapy relationship. The concept of antiracism, a proactive stance to address overt and covert racism in therapy, is presented as a strategy for moving toward more ethical therapy practice.
