"Mental Health" Power and Its Effects: A Commentary on Battling Against Inter-Faith Relations in Israel
Date of Original Version
Hakak (2016) provides an opportunity to examine how mental health and therapy systems in the United States operate to maintain current social and political structures. This commentary suggests that practitioners, including family therapists, participate in and support practices that do not serve the interests of marginalized social groups, despite our best intentions. Discourse theory offers a lens through which such practices become visible and thus open to revision.
