All practitioners and therapists would greatly benefit from immersing themselves into the roots of Decolonizing Therapy. Dr. Jenn nurtures a space for us to dig deep into rooted, humanizing, reparenting, loving, new world work that bridges the ancient. She invites our humanity and our pain to the table.--Shefali Tsabary, PhD, New York Times-bestselling author of The Conscious Parent
Jennifer Mullan offers a fiery provocation to all of us-especially those called to serve as therapists, practitioners, and healers. The call is to grasp at the root that which really harms us, those oppressive practices of our training that do more to dehumanize and disconnect than we've known. This book is a remembering of the wisdom of our practices and survival. What Mullan leaves us with, somehow, is everything, each other, and the beautiful and challenging project of creating decolonized spaces of healing and repair.--Prentis Hemphill, the Embodiment Institute
To receive the therapy you deserve, read Decolonizing Therapy and insist your therapist read it, too. Empowering, worldview-shattering, and necessary for immigrants and people of color.--Stephanie Foo, author of What My Bones Know: A Memoir of Healing from Complex Trauma
