Speaking Aut: Reframing practice through authenticity

Abby Sesterka, Erin Bulluss

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Activism is contextual. We often think of activism as being boisterous, emphatic and dogmatic − taking to the streets with megaphone in hand − when, in fact, activism can also manifest as modest or latent acts.

Our professional fields of clinical psychology and academia differ in many ways, but our respective practice is shaped by shared values of inclusiveness, equality and social justice. The ‘idea’ that changed us both, that facilitated a shift in mindset and had a profound impact on our practice, came not from a book or a paper, but from diagnostic reports: our own diagnostic reports.
