On this episode of Badass, Marabai speaks with Dr. Jennifer Mullan about her new book, Decolonizing Therapy: Oppression, Historical Trauma, and Politicizing Your Practice. Decolonizing Therapy puts forth a powerful argument for confronting the harm done by racism, sexism, and ableism in the world of mental health, and humanizing the mental health field. It provides a road map for the long work of beginning to heal a broken system. We hope you enjoy about the book, as well as the insights Dr. Mullan shares on how to embrace and express rage in a healthy way, and how to explore trauma through a dynamic lens.
