Thank You for Having Me

June Lee Kwon, Ph.D.

The present paper is a response to Dr. Burch’s clinical case and theoretical discussion (this issue) regarding the process of working with and through white privilege and whitewashing in her consulting room. In response to Dr. Burch’s thorough and careful effort to remain conscious of culture while working within a white dyad (white female patient and white female clinician), I offer personal and emotional experiences as an illustration of white disavowal, (i.e., whitewashing), of essential cultural and socioeconomic knowledge. I also suggest that the intellectualization and politicization of culture and socioeconomic systems can be seen as whitewashing within the field of psychoanalysis, and propose an integration of personal and emotional experiences regarding these systems as a critical part of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
