Critical consciousness. Empowerment. Accountability
Together we explore the foundations of healing and liberation as we identify and decolonize our lived experiences.

The Liberation Based Healing Conference (LBHC) is an annual, two-day event that brings together scholars, activists, educators, students, staff and community members from all over the U.S. to engage in collective discourse about how coloniality shows up in traditional education and therapeutic models. The panels at this conference use an intersectional approach to dissect how societal-level markers, such as ability, age, class, citizenship, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sexual identity, show up simultaneously in community and individual levels as power and privilege.

Year after year, the Liberation Based Healing Conference, founded by the Institute for Family Services, creates opportunities to share strategies that promote relational healing and liberation. It’s a celebration of our work, our creativity and our culture, and an opportunity to change the world for the better in both incremental and profound ways.
