This talk is for anyone interested in the education of mental health clinicians (e.g., counselors, social workers, therapists, or psychologists) and discussing the ways in which anarchist pedagogy can help prepare clinicians to address intersections in their work and their education. The presenter will have some points to present on this topic (e.g., prefigurative outlooks, direct action, and mutual aid in classrooms and field) but invites any interested to bring their points of view either from their own education, their own experiences with a mental health clinician, or experiences in helping to train mental health clinicians. Anarchist-aligned perspectives toward mental health will be discussed, such as work by the Jane Addams Collective and their Mutual Aid Self/Social Therapy and the Power Threat Meaning Framework. Of importance to discuss is the intersectionality between mental health, class, disability, race, gender, and other features of identity.
