DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

1. In the vignette involving Mulani, the African American therapist, and her white supervisor, Helen, how could the PAST Model be used to help them effectively restart their conversation?

  • 2. In the vignette involving Jaipaul, Richard, and Monique, if you were in a position to coach them through their contentious and failed conversation, using the PAST Model as your guide, where would you start? Whom would you start with and why?
  • 3. Why do you think it is common during heated racial encounters for each of us to resort to our subjugated positions?
