Uncovering the history and impacts of colonization on queer & trans people is incredibly important for counselors serving these populations. Building upon the quintessential work of Dr. Anneliese Singh, this workshop will provide a review of how indigenous healing practices and beliefs were colonized in the foundation for modern psychology, and how decolonizing work can be healing for all clients. Liberation, empowerment, and celebration approaches and specific practices will be discussed. Counselors will learn why decolonization is important to multiculturally competent practice and social justice, as well as how to move past affirmative approaches in counseling to liberation and celebration.
