St Petersburg College Not Everything that Is Faced Can Be Changed Discussion

Read this quote by James Baldwin:

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

Discuss your reaction to this statement. Describe a scenario from your work with a client where this statement has proven true (no names or identifying information to maintain client confidentiality).

If you do not work in the field yet, describe a scenario from your own experience or someone in your family where this statement has proven to be true. Remember to be respectful of others’ stories and refrain from using names or identifying information here either. (I don’t want to meet your sister and know all her business without her permission, and I’ll bet she wouldn’t want that either.)
