Liberation Psychology: Ethical Considerations for Practice with Marginalized Communities

  • 16 Jun 2021
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Virtual


Co-sponsored by Pepperdine University and the Diversity, Social Justice and Inclusion Committee (DSJI) of the DC Psychological Association, this free program will expand the understanding of the ethic of care based on liberation  psychology theory, method,  and practice overall and with special populations.

This course will provide an introduction to the use of liberation psychology as an aligned practice with the American Psychological Association's call for multicultural, justice informed practice, which is particularly relevant to the times of hate crimes and trauma oppression.  Attention will be given to the ways in which awareness of discrimination, cultural identities, and personal as well as cultural strengths should inform assessment, case conceptualization,  and treatment. Presenters will give an overview of this decolonizing approach to psychotherapy as well as the ways it may be applied with Black clients and LGBTQ+ communities. Instructors are experts  in the field of liberation psychology and mental health practices with marginalized communities.

Space is limited, so register today!
