Radical Psychology : Multicultural and Social Justice Decolonization Initiatives Hardback
Edited by Susan O. Gelberg, Mathew A. Poteet, David D. Moore, Don Coyhis
Radical Psychology discusses psychological factors that shape multicultural competency and social justice effectiveness, such as implicit and explicit biases, difficulties in accurate self-assessment of cultural competency and social justice skills, and the historical colonial biases that still shape Western psychological training and practice.
This book provides a challenging balance between research and professional reflections in order to appeal to readers with different cultural background and different learning styles.
The diversity of the contributors underscores the emphasis on the need to include cultural experts as side-by-side colleagues, consultants, and supervisors in order to help Western psychologists expand their professional cultural paradigms and worldviews.
This book is relevant to psychologists, counselors, educators, researchers, social workers, substance abuse counselors, administrators, students, and mental health agencies.
