Privilege, Power and Oppression

I had my first weekend intensive this weekend. The class was titled Privilege,  Power and Oppression.  Very interesting course that disscussed how we as clinicians identify ourselves. It talked about how different groups experience power, privilege and oppression.  What I found to be the most interesting was all of the statistics that were discussed with regards to cost of living, education etc. I am leaving the weekend wanting to find how Canada's stats compare and if I am as surprised by them as the ones for the United States.
One more weekend to go, in November,  then the course is complete (minus the final paper). I think for that weekend I will stock up on sleep before hand!
