Continuing Education

Whether you are an educator, administrator, clinician, or activist, it’s time for unity and clarity around supporting families and communities.

The Liberation-Based Healing conferences, workshops, and events present strategies that promote relational healing and liberation from the oppressive patterns that structure society.

Participants learn to apply social justice to the criminal justice system, community and domestic violence, education, immigration policy, mental health and wellness, religious and spiritual practices, poverty, and youth empowerment.

About Liberation-Based Healing

Liberation-based healing invokes critical dialogues and social action around empowerment, accountability  and inclusion among individuals, families, and communities.  This paradigm of healing departs from the colonizing practices of traditional mental health and family therapy. As part of a complex mosaic of intersectionality, individuals are seen in relation to their culture, race, gender, and sexual orientation, as well as their social, political and historical contexts.
