Cultural Complex

$47.95

How do cultural complexes affect the collective psyche?
Based on Jung's theory of complexes, this book offers a new perspective on the psychological nature of conflicts between groups and cultures by introducing the concept of the cultural complex. This modern version of Jung's idea offers an original view of the forces that prevent human attempts to bring a peaceful, collaborative spirit to conflict between groups.
Leading analysts and academics from a range of cultural backgrounds present their own perspective on the concept, demonstrating how the effects of cultural complexes can be felt in the behaviour of disenfranchised, oppressed and traumatised groups across the world. Ultimately, a clearer understanding of the source and nature of group conflict is reached through discussion of central subjects including:
* Collective trauma and cultural complexes
* Exploring racism: a clinical example of a cultural complex
* Cultural complexes in the history of Jung, Freud and their followers.
The Cultural Complex represents a valuable contribution to analytical psychology and will undoubtedly also stimulate dialogue in the fields of sociology, political science and cultural studies.

Decolonizing Methodologies Research and Indigenous Peoples 2nd Ed

$34.95

To the colonized, the term 'research' is conflated with European colonialism; the ways in which academic research has been implicated in the throes of imperialism remains a painful memory. This essential volume explores intersections of imperialism and research - specifically, the ways in which imperialism is embedded in disciplines of knowledge and tradition as 'regimes of truth.' Concepts such as 'discovery' and 'claiming' are discussed and an argument presented that the decolonization of research methods will help to reclaim control over indigenous ways of knowing and being.
Now in its eagerly awaited second edition, this bestselling book has been substantially revised, with new case-studies and examples and important additions on new indigenous literature, the role of research in indigenous struggles for social justice, which brings this essential volume urgently up-to-date.

Psychology of Liberation Theory and Applications

$269.00

Since the mid-1980s, the psychology of liberation movement has been a catalyst for collective and individual change in communities throughout Latin America, and beyond; and recent political developments are making its powerful, transformative ideas more relevant than ever before. Psychology of Liberation: Theory and Applications updates the activist frameworks developed by Ignacio Martin-Baro and Paulo Freire with compelling stories from the frontlines of conflict in the developing and developed worlds, as social science and psychological practice are allied with struggles for peace, justice, and equality.

In these chapters, liberation is presented as both an ongoing process and a core dimension of wellbeing, entailing the reconstruction of social identity and the transformation of all parties involved, both oppressed and oppressors. It also expands the social consciousness of professionals, bringing more profound meaning to practice and enhancing related areas such as peace psychology, as shown in articles such as these:

  • Philippines: the role of liberation movements in the transition to democracy.
  • Venezuela: liberation psychology as a therapeutic intervention with street youth.
  • South Africa: the movement for representational knowledge.
  • Muslim world: religion, the state, and the gendering of human rights.
  • Ireland: linking personal and political development.
  • Australia: addressing issues of racism, identity, and immigration.
  • Colombia: building cultures of peace from the devastation of war.
  • Psychology of Liberation demonstrates the commitment to overcome social injustices and oppression. The book is a critical resource for social and community psychologists as well as policy analysts. It can also be used as a text for graduate courses in psychology, sociology, social work and community studies.

    Urban Alchemy Restoring Joy in America's Sorted-Out Cities

    $19.95

    What if divided neighborhoods were causing public health problems? What if a new approach to planning and design could tackle both the built environment and collective well-being at the same time? What if cities could help each other?

    Dr. Mindy Thompson Fullilove, the acclaimed author of Root Shock, uses her unique perspective as a public health psychiatrist to explore and identify ways of healing social and spatial fractures simultaneously. Using the work of French urbanist Michel Cantal-Dupart and the American urban design firm Rothschild Doyno Collaborative as guides as well as urban restoration projects from France and the US as exemplary cases, Fullilove identifies nine tools that can mend our broken cities and reconnect our communities to make them whole.

    Black Skin White Masks

    Borderlands / La Frontera The New Mestiza 4th ed Somatics Sum15, CLE SP15 students may also use the 3rd edition

    product image
    $18.95

    Rooted in Gloria Anzaldua's experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenged, and continue to challenge, how we think about identity. "Borderlands / La Frontera "remaps our understanding of what a "border" is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us.

    This twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new introduction by scholars Norma Cantu (University of Texas at San Antonio) and Aida Hurtado (University of California at Santa Cruz) as well as a revised critical bibliography.

    Gloria Anzaldua was a Chicana-tejana-lesbian-feminist poet, theorist, and fiction writer from south Texas. She was the editor of the critical anthology "Making Face/Making Soul: Haciendo Caras "(Aunt Lute Books, 1990), co-editor of "This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color," and winner of the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award. She taught creative writing, Chicano studies, and feminist studies at University of Texas, San Francisco State University, Vermont College of Norwich University, and University of California Santa Cruz. Anzaldua passed away in 2004 and was honored around the world for shedding visionary light on the Chicana experience by receiving the National Association for Chicano Studies Scholar Award in 2005. Gloria was also posthumously awarded her doctoral degree in literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. A number of scholarships and book awards, including the Anzaldua Scholar Activist Award and the Gloria E. Anzaldua Award for Independent Scholars, are awarded in her name every year.

    Witnessing: Beyond Recognition

    $20.00

    Philosophy

    A new, ethically based theory of identity by a major scholar.

    Challenging the fundamental tenet of the multicultural movement-that social struggles turning upon race, gender, and sexuality are struggles for recognition-this work offers a powerful critique of current conceptions of identity and subjectivity based on Hegelian notions of recognition. The author's critical engagement with major texts of contemporary philosophy prepares the way for a highly original conception of ethics based on witnessing.

    Central to this project is Oliver's contention that the demand for recognition is a symptom of the pathology of oppression that perpetuates subject-object and same-different hierarchies. While theorists across the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences focus their research on multiculturalism around the struggle for recognition, Oliver argues that the actual texts and survivors' accounts from the aftermath of the Holocaust and slavery are testimonials to a pathos that is "beyond recognition."

    Oliver traces many of the problems with the recognition model of subjective identity to a particular notion of vision presupposed in theories of recognition and misrecognition. Contesting the idea of an objectifying gaze, she reformulates vision as a loving look that facilitates connection rather than necessitates alienation. As an alternative, Oliver develops a theory of witnessing subjectivity. She suggests that the notion of witnessing, with its double meaning as either eyewitness or bearing witness to the unseen, is more promising than recognition for describing the onset and sustenance of subjectivity. Subjectivity is born out of and sustained by the process of witnessing-the possibility of address and response-which puts ethical obligations at its heart. Kelly Oliver is professor of philosophy and women's studies at SUNY Stony Brook. She is the author of, among other works, Subjectivity without Subjects (1998) and Family Values (1997).

    Toward Psychologies of Liberation

    $30.00

    “This landmark book takes us on an unforgettable journey across disciplines, countries, spiritualities, and techniques to teach us twenty-first century psychologies of liberation. Authors Watkins and Shulman transform the discipline of psychology, showing us its connections to all disciplines concerned with liberating the imagination. Across international fields of difference, these authors never give up the prize: social and psychic emancipation. In doing so, they define what “decoloniality” means for the twenty-first century.”

    Chela Sandoval, Associate Professor of Liberation Philosophy; Chair, Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara


     

    Understanding that the psychological well-being of individuals is inextricably linked to the health of their communities, environments, and cultures, the authors propose a radical interdisciplinary reorientation of psychology to create participatory and dialogical spaces for critical understanding and creative restoration.

    Social Awareness in Counselling: A Critique of Mainstream Counselling From A Feminist Counselling, Cross-Cultural Counselling, And Liberation Psychology Perspective

    $11.95

    "Social Awareness in Counselling" is a critique of mainstream Counselling from three alternative therapeutic orientations: feminist Counselling, cross-cultural Counselling, and liberation psychology. It explores the many areas in which mainstream Counselling focuses exclusively on the individual while failing to explore wider social issues that often greatly influence our values, behaviors and experiences. Issues such as gender, class, sexual orientation, culture and ethnicity are rarely considered. The social and personal oppression that cultural stereotypes engender remain largely unacknowledged in mainstream Counselling.

    '"'Social Awareness in Counselling" unearths Counselling research in both mainstream and alternative Counselling orientations. The feminist Counselling model addresses such issues as gender, race and class, and also emphasises the need for awareness of power issues within the Counselling relationship. Cross-cultural Counselling models state that Counselling is largely based on western beliefs and values that are alien to culturally-different clients. The theories of liberation psychology stress the importance of facing the political, social and economic roots of oppression that limit personal freedom and choice.

    Social Awareness in Counselling" is an invaluable guide for counsellors, course directors, and prospective clients. It clearly states the pitfalls of Counselling while pointing the way forward towards a more egalitarian and socially aware therapeutic relationship.

    The Multicultural Imagination: "Race", Color, and the Unconscious

    $42.50

    The Multicultural Imagination is a challenging inquiry into the complex interrelationship between our ideas about race and color and the unconscious. Michael Vannoy Adams takes a fresh look at the contributions of psychoanalysis to a question which affects every individual who tries to establish an effective personal identity in the context of their received 'racial' identity.
    Adams argues that 'race' is just as important as sex or any other content of the unconcscious, drawing on clinical case materal from contemporary patients for whom 'race' or color is a vitally significant social and political concern that impacts on them personally. He does not assume that racism or 'colorism' will simply vanish if we psychoanalyse them, but shows how a non-defensive ego and a self-image that is receptive to other-images can move us towards a more productive discourse of cultural differences.
    Wide-ranging in its references and scope, this is a book that provokes the reader - analyst or not - to confront personally those unconscious attitudes which stand in the way of authentic multicultural relationships.

    Mongrels, Bastards, Orphans, and Vagabonds: Mexican Immigration and the Future of Race in America

    $15.95

    An unprecedented account of the long-term cultural and political influences that Mexican-Americans will have on the collective character of our nation.In considering the largest immigrant group in American history, Gregory Rodriguez examines the complexities of its heritage and of the racial and cultural synthesis--mestizaje--that has defined the Mexican people since the Spanish conquest in the sixteenth century. He persuasively argues that the rapidly expanding Mexican American integration into the mainstream is changing not only how Americans think about race but also how we envision our nation. Brilliantly reasoned, highly thought provoking, and as historically sound as it is anecdotally rich, Mongrels, Bastards, Orphans, and Vagabonds is a major contribution to the discussion of the cultural and political future of the United States.

    The Invisible Culture: Communication in Classroom and Community on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation

    $14.95

    A classic in the fields of educational anthropology and sociolinguistics, this volume offers much to the understanding of the organization of communication in the classroom. With an approach that balances both theory and application, Philips explores the experience of Warm Springs Indian children in an American school. She reveals the ways in which the daily interactions among the teachers and students place the Indian children in a subordinate position not only by virtue of their status as children and students relative to adult teachers, but also as Indians relative to the dominant Euro- American culture. While this book is ostensibly about the experience of the Warm Springs children, it also expresses important insights for anyone who seeks to understand the role of language in culture.

    Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice: Assessment, Diagnosis, and Therapy, 2nd Edition

    $59.95

    This engaging book helps readers move beyond one-dimensional conceptualizations of identity to an understanding of the complex, overlapping cultural influences that form each of us. Pamela Hays' ""ADDRESSING"" framework enables therapists to better recognize and understand cultural influences as a multidimensional combination of Age, Developmental and acquired Disabilities, Religion, Ethnicity, Socioeconomic status, Sexual orientation, Indigenous heritage, Native origin, and Gender. Unlike other books on therapy with diverse clients, which tend to focus on working with one particular ethnic group, ""Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice"" presents a framework that can be used with a person of any cultural identity.This second edition has been updated throughout and has new sections on cross-cultural assessment of trauma, on psychotherapy with people living in poverty, and on ethical boundaries and complex relationships in rural and minority communities. A special section describes how to integrate cultural considerations into the evidence-based practice of cognitive - behavioral therapy. Organized according to the flow of clinical work (in contrast to the one chapter-per-group approach), the book's contents are summarized in handy Key Tables at the end of each chapter for ease of use in education and supervision.This stimulating book will be an important resource for counselors, clinicians, and mental health professionals working with clients from a variety of backgrounds.
