Liberation Based Healing Conference - Discounts Available

Friday, 12 October, 2018


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
