Negotiation of power in interpersonal relationships and social influence literature provide a framework for empowering consumers of counseling and educational services who have experienced discrimination, loss of voice, and disempowerment.

Case examples of interventions for empowering consumers will be discussed and participants will share their own experiences and generate new strategies from past successes.
