Designing for Ontological Shifts in Community Psychology: Leveraging Indigenous Intellectual Theories & Practices

Contemporary approaches to community mental health frequently emerge from a Western sociocultural context, resulting far too often in enclosed understandings of psychological functioning. This talk offers Indigenous Storying and Walking/Reading/Storying the Land as both theory and practice towards transformative frameworks for understanding human learning, development, and wellbeing.
