What do you need to make your activism sustainable? What’s missing from the groups you’re involved with?

These are the questions that Karen Hixson and Jenna Goldin begin their group counseling work with. They’re working with Relational Cultural Theory, the idea that the goal of development is the ability to participate actively in relationships that foster the well being of everyone involved.

We spoke with Karen and Jenna about living within a culture of isolation, and how it effects communication both inside and outside activist groups.
