2018 Liberation Based Healing Conference: Resist. Unite. Thrive
Saint Louis University
1 N Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63108, USA
Resist. Unite. Thrive.
Whether you are an educator, student, administrator, clinician, or
activist these challenging times call for clarity in solidarity-work with
families and communities towards equity. Effectively doing so requires
that our practices engage in understanding the multiplicity of personal,
social and institutional locations that frame identities within historic,
economic and political life. The paradigm of Liberation-based Healing
locates these complexities within a societal matrix that shapes
relationships of: power, privilege, and oppression- building on the
foundations of Critical Consciousness, Empowerment and
Accountability in order to interrupt White, Cis-Hetero- Patriarchy as a
dominant discourse within a Capitalist context of Coloniality.
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." - Audre Lorde
