Liberation Based Healing Practices by Rhea Almeida, PhD

December, 2018

Decolonizing strategies necessary to create Liberation Based Healing practices call for changing the lens and the language, and debunking the myth of healing through diagnostic codes, individual structures and the rigid bifurcation of individuals, their families, their context, and their healing spaces…Liberation based healing locates these complexities within a societal matrix that shapes relationships in the context of power, privilege, and oppression, and builds on the foundations of critical consciousness, empowerment and accountability. Rhea Almeida - Liberation Based Healing Practices

Almeida’s cogent analysis of how to challenge privilege, power, oppression using intersectionality is the only text that offers a liberation based healing “how to” for helping professionals and educators who are engaged in preparing students for professions in social work, counseling and therapy.

Willie Tolliver, MS, DSW, Associate Professor at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York
