Abstract

While intersectionality has become an established and much used theory in feminist and critical race studies, the concept remains relatively underused by systemic family therapists and on family therapy training courses. And yet systemic therapy embraces the multiplicity of human existence and examines the interplay of power relations. This article attempts to fill this gap by emphasizing the usefulness of intersectionality in representing the complexities of lived experience and by presenting an exercise to introduce students to intersectionality in family therapy training.
