Mary Watkins and Helene Shulman’s book Toward Psychologies of Liberation arrives in a time of ongoing upheaval and transformation, as an invitation to a conversation that has emerged from among those at the margins of political interpellation, the last hundred years of struggle and reflection in the wake of 500 years of colonization and increasing globalization

Psychologies of liberation are emerging on every continent in response to the collective traumas inflicted by colonialism and globalization. The authors present the theoretical foundation and participatory methodologies that unite these radical interdisciplinary approaches to creating individual and community well-being. They move from a description of the psychological and community wounds that are common to unjust and violent contexts to engaging examples of innovative community projects from around the world that seek to heal these wounds.  The creation of public homeplaces, the work of liberation arts, critical participatory action research, public dialogue, and reconciliation are highlighted as embodying the values and hopes of liberation psychology. Drawing on psychoanalysis, trauma studies, liberation arts, participatory research, and contemporary cultural work, this book nourishes our understanding of and imagination about the kinds of healing that are necessary to the creation of more just and peaceful communities. In dialogue with cultural workers, writers, and visionaries from Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, the United States, and the Pacific Islands, Toward Psychologies of Liberation quickens a dialogical convergence of liberatory psychological theories and practices that will seed individual and community transformation.
Reviews about Toward Psychologies Of Liberation (7):
Transformative... Watkins & Shulman should be read by all students of psychology who want to wake up to the possibility that psychology can contribute to global solutions, not problems. Psychology has the potential to unlock world peace, human compassion, and social justice, but we need a new voice, and Toward Psychologies of Liberation is a tremendous start to a better world. I used this book in a senior-level course where students analyzed interview transcripts of victims and advocates in Juarez, Mexico. Watkins and Shulman was a means of bringing students a sense of empowerment over meaningless violence. Bringing students outside the bubble, liberation psychology gives students a foundation to start anew... to think of the world as a place for potential and change. Thanks to this book, my students are transformed into critical thinkers, global thinkers, and individuals who understand their potential to create a just world. This book is my favorite gift for my favorite friends.
This is hands down the best book I have ever read.

Watkins and Shulman, here, succinctly articulate the most profound challenges of living facing the world's peoples in the west today. They are a voice for the voiceless and a light in the darkness that is western militarism, consumerism, postcolonial reigns terror.

Please, order this book. Order this book for your daughters and your sons. Order this book for humanity. Order this book and read deeply, read authentically, read for your children and your grandchildren. Send copies to politicians and shut down academics who've given up hope. Send copies to your bosses, your employees, your clients, and your therapist. Let these women's voices speak right into your heart. You won't be sorry. I promise you.
This is an invaluable resource that pulls together a wide, and sometimes disconnected, body of scholarship and activism around liberation psychology and social justice issues. It is easy to read, passionately written, and both clear and nuanced in its articulation of concepts and paradigms. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to understand more about this subject, regardless of how well-versed you already are (or aren't)!
Eye opening.
transformative but dense
One of my favorite books to read. I have given several as gifts. It is written in a very approachable way, yet opens up opportunity for deeply critical thinking and conversation.
Great book
A great book I will go back to. There is a lot to learn on how to bring positive change globally. Great examples are written in it.
