Theoretical Foundations for Liberation Psychology
What is decolonized Mental Health?

Dr. Edil Torres Rivera, Ph.D.

There is a growing body of literature that addresses colonialism and its impact in different disciplines such as psychology and education (Goodman & Gorski, 2015; McLaren et al., 2000). The literature posits that WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic) concepts not only dominates the discourse regarding what research and knowledge should be, but also what is known about people. These conceptions about research and knowledge are problematic since they continue to perpetuate Western societies ideas that undermine diversity, inclusion, and development of critical thinking within academic spaces (Macleoud et al., 2020). Furthermore, it does not allow mental health professionals to approach clients from a culturally appropriate stance. Therefore, this workshop will provide the audience with applicable approaches that are based in liberation and decolonial processes.
