Addressing the Power Dynamic in a Clinical Setting as a Healthcare Provider, with Silvia Dutchevici of the Critical Therapy Institute
In this week’s episode, I am joined by Silvia M. Dutchevici, President and Founder of the Critical Therapy Institute. Silvia and I will be discussing how power is addressed in the clinical setting and how healthcare providers actually analyze their own power.
A trained psychotherapist, Dutchevici, created critical therapy on perceiving a need for the theory and practice of psychology to reflect how race, class, gender, and religion intersect with psychological conflicts. She is a founding board member of Black Women’s Blueprint and a member of the Physicians for Human Right’s Asylum Network, where she conducts psychological evaluations documenting evidence of torture and persecution for survivors fleeing danger in their home countries.
Silvia has a master’s degree in social work from New York University and a master’s degree in psychology from the New School, and a bachelor’s degree in religious studies and political science from Fordham University. She has lectured and presented throughout the country on critical therapy, including at Fordham and NYU, and has been featured in the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Psychology Today, The Guardian, International Business Times, and Women’s Health.
Tune in to this week’s episode to learn:
- How she guides healthcare providers be become more empowered themselves
