Subject: Webinar Decolonizing Psychology

3-Session Online Conference beginning October 30, 2020

Mainstream psychology continues to privilege and promote the interests of the majority, in particular those in Western, Educated, Industrial, Rich, and Democratic countries (WEIRD). The call for a decolonial turn in psychology has gathered momentum over recent years along with greater reflection on how the field reproduces and reinforces systems of oppression including social, racial, economic, and ecological injustices.

This graduate student-led conference will bring together researchers and clinicians to answer two main questions: (a) How can we redress and resist the asymmetrical distribution of power within psychological science, research, training and practice? (b) What steps do we need to take to give voice to those who are marginalized within the field, in particular those outside of the West, and incorporate their knowledge and expertise to create a more holistic discipline? In addressing these questions we will discuss the history of decolonial psychology, how colonialism has shaped the field of psychology, and how we can incorporate decolonial methods into clinical and academic work to move towards personal and collective emancipation.
