Well spoken.

In my lived experience, "colonization" in the form of class, ethnic and gender based behavioral control needs a stronger more developed form of resistance. Martín-Baró died before he was able to go fully that way.

Right now I am working to help bring together the psychology of "social responsibility" and that of "nonviolence," associated with "violence, abuse, and trauma. In that regard, Gfe helps bring forward the GPN (Global Psychosocial Network) form of resistance.

Good question. Liberation psychology; Martin Baro,

The feminists have a long history of fighting the white male domination of Psychology and the LGBT psychiatrists and psychologists have a story of fighting for freedom, but psychology is still a totally colonized entity.

The work of feminist and womanist psychologists is sometimes devalued as being part of the whole imperialistic culture. But I see this work as being essential within the "belly of the beast" . This kind of liberation theory opens a path to other resistances.

Can you join the decolonization discussions on Saturdays?
