Then in the group ask the following question about the pix song etc what is happening here

Conscientization = people critically reflecting on their own or others situation in a way that leads to a deeper understanding of issues of oppression, disempowerment etc. This can be facilitated

Problematization = Either through the process of 'conscientization' or other processes, helping others see that what is accepted as 'normal' is actually a problem.

These two processes are the essence of advocacy and making something an issue!!


Then in the group ask the following question about the pix song etc what is happening here

  • A particular technique that can be used in this process is referred to as "codification". A codification is a 'right-brained' tool for getting at left-brained material. For example to ask a group of clients to "draw a picture" of what its like to be a client. OR to select a song or a poem that describes what it is like. Or ask a group of women who are being moved off of afdc to do a ‘skit’ about their experience!
