Description

In Mixed-Race Identities, Dr. Maria P. P. Root demonstrates her approach to working with clients who are experiencing conflicts or distress because of mixed-race identity. Dr. Root's multiculturally sensitive approach seeks to strengthen or find a client's own voice and validate the client's experiences and ways of belonging in the world.

In this session, Dr. Root works with a young woman in her mid-20s whose mother is African and whose father is Latino. Dr. Root helps her client to look at various effects that her mixed-race heritage has had on her life. She illuminates the various struggles surrounding the client's identity as well as her resilience and the need for continued vigilance in discerning how society's "race rules" are causing much of the stress she is experiencing.
