If someone is going through depression, sadness and anxiety due to discrimination, seeing a Discrimination Therapist is an excellent option. Psychotherapy in particular, can be vital in treating the negative mental effects of the discrimination and prejudice. Patients can find a therapist that will make them feel supported and validated, and they can also learn great coping skills to manage the harmful effects of it. In addition, attending the therapy can increase assertiveness skills and help the patient feel more confident and empowered. While in therapy a client can learn skills like how to overcome stereotypes and stigmas that lead to prejudice and discrimination, and also explore various ways to ask for forgiveness or make resolutions, thus creating new and unbiased relationships with oneself and others.
When going to a discrimination therapist, the patient should feel open and free to discuss concerns about the prejudice and discrimination they have been receiving. It is more than acceptable to ask about a therapist's knowledge and experience in working with specific cultural groups, as some patients might find the treatment works better with a therapist from their own racial or ethnic background. The therapist, though, is here to get you to bypass these judgments and reconcile your own personal self-esteem so you can learn to grow and move on from others posing discriminatory acts upon you. By working together, you and your therapist are helping you have a path for new foundations and discoveries into well-being.
