Faculty and Student Publish Article on The Power of Professional Pronouns

Members of New England’s Counseling and Therapy programs published the article “What’s in a Name?: The Power of Professional Pronouns” in the Family Therapy Magazine. The authors, Doctoral candidate Vanessa Perocier (she/her), Adjunct Faculty member Maxine Notice (she/her), Associate Professor and Department Chair Lucille H. Byno (she/her), and Teaching Faculty Markie L. C. Twist (she/they) had equal authorship.

From the article:

“In this piece, we focus our attention on some of the smallest of words that hold power – pronouns. This piece opens with a few of our stories around professional pronouns. We then move into a brief history of professional titles and prefixes followed by a current cultural outlook. We then close this piece with our field-based implications.”

Parts of the content from the article were presented at the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy Queer and Trans Advocacy Network Second Virtual Conference in June of 2022.
