Please join us for the 10th Annual Liberation-Based Healing Conference (LBHC) “Challenging Inequities: Decolonizing Practices and Social Action” November 13th & 14th, 2015 hosted and held at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). Whether you are an educator, student, administrator, clinician, or activist these challenging times call for unity and clarity around supporting families and communities.


Founded by The Institute for Family Services (IFS), the LBHC offers strategies that promote healing by interrupting oppressive societal structures with justice-based practices. This 2 DAY conference keeps intersectionality at the center of it's planning and facilitation; we bring in a range of speakers representing and centering on the experiences of voices who've been marginalized and disenfranchised. We will examine systems of criminal justice, community and domestic violence, education, immigration, health and mental health, religious and spiritual practices, homelessness, and youth incarceration. This event offers 16 CEU's!

Here is a short description of our vision:

Decolonizing Strategies call for changing the Paradigm, the lens, the language, and the journey and necessitates debunking the myth of healing through diagnostic codes, individual structures and the rigid bi-furcation of individuals, their families, their context and their healing spaces.

It encompasses the multiplicity of personal and social, institutional locations that frame identities within historic, economic and political life. People within our own and global localities are unwittingly located within a range of broad and nuanced descriptors that may or may not include nationality, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, or religious preference.

They might also trace other identity markers that are both simultaneously visible and concealed. These personal and political intersections are largely unacknowledged by current western models of psychological practice.

This paradigm of Liberation-based healing locates these complexities within a societal matrix that shapes relationships: power, privilege, and oppression building on the foundations of Critical Consciousness, Empowerment and Accountability within culture circles accompanied by tools for identifying and decolonizing lived experiences.
