New Article! Nashman Affiliate Faculty Member Jordan Potash: Relational Social Justice Ethics for Art Therapists in Art Therapy

Abstract: Relational social justice integrates psychological theories and practices with political and social change paradigms to situate relationships as central to ethical decision making. The core of this approach entails strong assurance of human rights and commitment to dialogue across racial, cultural, social, and political differences. Typical patterns that characterize protesters and opponents as enemies are replaced with both functioning as partners in the quest for social change. Art therapists can employ the relational approach to ethics when engaging with policymakers, colleagues, and clients to challenge injustice and reimagine societal norms.
