who we are
Critical Global Education for Community Psychology encourages reflexivity on our roles and positionality globally as we act locally. It involves increasing our understanding of how macro systems of globalization and histories of colonization relate to the experiences of local social groups around the world. It encourages learning more about how capitalism, neoliberalism, and environmental violence deeply connects with social violence and other issues experienced across settings.
Community Psychologists from multiple regions of the globe reflect on their roles in academic settings, how we are working to subvert dominant paradigms inherent in universities within our unique regions, and how we work to address the interests of marginalized voices, including indigenous and Afro-descendent populations.
