The “Confronting Hegemonic Ideas Speakers’ Series” is designed to increase awareness of heterodox viewpoints and inconvenient facts/findings that do not conform to hegemonic narratives and dominant perspectives, in order to promote critical thinking, intellectually rigorous research, and the ability to serve a broader range of counselling clients.

A viewing room will be set up in Scarfe 310 for those who wish to view it with others on the UBC campus. A Zoom room will be set up for those who wish to continue to discuss the talk after its completion.

Pre-registration required. Please register online at

Talk is open to UBC CNPS/ECPS affiliated individuals (past/present) and members/affiliates of Heterodox Academy
