Dr. Patricia Wood, PhD, will give a noon Faculty Forum presentation on "Making Sense of Social Class," January 6, 2014 at the Wright Institute, Room 109/110. This Forum will begin by identifying some of the complexities in defining social class and the numerous ways class status has been measured in psychology.
Issues of downward and upward class mobility, in addition to the culture of class status will be explored. Finally, we will review two contrasting models of social class used in clinical psychology, and discuss how each model informs the way we work with clients around issues of class status, class culture and class mobility.
