New Release – Clinical Interventions for Internalized Oppression Edited by Jan E. Estrellado, Ph.D., Lou S. Felipe, Ph.D., and Jeannie E. Celestial, Ph.D., M.S.W.

San Diego, CA – June 22, 2022 – Cognella Academic Publishing is proud to announce the publication of Clinical Interventions for Internalized Oppression edited by Jan E. Estrellado, Ph.D., Lou S. Felipe, Ph.D., and Jeannie E. Celestial, Ph.D., M.S.W. Recognizing that many marginalized communities experience the damaging mental health impacts of oppression and discrimination, the book offers practitioners theoretical frameworks, treatment recommendations, and practice guidelines for addressing bias in their own work, as well as specific interventions for treating the deleterious impacts of inequity.

The book introduces readers to conceptual frameworks for internalized oppression and the interactive nature of systems of privilege, power, and oppression within individual and collective experiences. Later chapters identify where different facets of internalized oppression may present themselves in broad clinical domains. Readers explore the ways in which internalized negative beliefs emerge from historic oppression and how they present and manifest.

Throughout, queer and/or Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) practitioner spotlights, clinical vignettes, somatic reflections, self-reflection, and discussion questions deepen readers’ learning experiences and promote real-world application.

Clinical Interventions for Internalized Oppression is part of the Cognella Series on Advances in Culture, Race, and Ethnicity. The series, co-sponsored by Division 45 of the American Psychological Association, addresses critical and emerging issues within culture, race, and ethnic studies, as well as specific topics among various ethnocultural groups.

 

From the Preface: 

“Drs. Jan Estrellado, Lou Felipe, and Jeannie Celestial have done a remarkable job of assembling a group of scholars, clinicians, and community leaders who do not see their personal connection to internalized oppression as a limitation, but instead see it as a strength that both elevates their work and makes it deeply impactful. Addressing internalized oppression is hard work, but for many of us this is not just our hard work; it is also our heart’s work. Sure, readers should be prepared to apply the contents of this book in the professional context, but they should also be prepared for deep personal reflection, transformation, and growth.”

—E. J. R. David, Ph.D., author of Brown Skin, White Minds, editor of Internalized Oppression: The Psychology of Marginalized Groups, and professor of psychology at University of Alaska Anchorage
