Understanding Wellness through Liberatory Frameworks

The Psychology of Radical Healing (PRH) Collective consists of a team of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) psychologists and healers. We see our call as a way to highlight the strength, resources, and actions that are not typically acknowledged among BIPOC. The PRH aims to encourage social justice action and commitment among psychologists and to affirm the social justice and healing work of individuals outside of psychology. We draw from interdisciplinary scholars to frame the psychological framework of Radical Healing – including education, sociology, and knowledge from community activists entrenched in grass roots liberatory work.  

Radical healing is being able to sit in a dialectic and exist in both spaces of resisting oppression and moving toward freedom.
