Just Talk… PCOMS as Political Action

At the Heart and Soul of Change Conference, the gentle and powerful Jacqueline Sparks, PhD gave a moving keynote on how:

  • Psychotherapy itself is a political act.
  • What we do in our daily practice, within the sphere of psychotherapy talk or within the confines of our work setting, either supports or undermines systems of injustice and oppression.
  • PCOMS is “Just Talk”; PCOMS systematically includes clients’ voices to guide all treatment decisions.
  • Transforming mental health paperwork, policies to give clients the loudest voice in determining goals and methods for therapy is political action.

PCOMS provides a safety net for ensuring we do not replicate oppressive practices of the past (and present), especially when clients differ from their therapists along lines of culture, ethnicity, race, gender, social location, and other aspects of identity.

She had graciously agreed to present “Just Talk” …PCOMS as Political Action, as a MyOutcomes webinar.
