What People are Saying About This
“Therapy, at best, is about transformation. Dr. Hernandez-Wolfe's brilliant book provides nepanthla, the territory for transformation—an in-between space in which, through individual and collective reflection, we can see ourselves and each other more clearly. By showing how macro-societal processes are enacted in the micro-processes of everyday life, she challenges taken-for-granted practices and offers pathways for new therapeutic action. I highly recommend this book for clinicians of all levels of experience.” —Kaethe Weingarten, PhD, Harvard Medical School
"The author weaves an exciting tapestry of contemporary perspectives that are relevant to therapeutic work in the globalized contexts of patriarchy and coloniality. Intriguing case studies anchor an argument for fluidity of thought and community-based collaborative practices. This is essential reading for all who are taking up the challenges of liberation, decolonization, and the reconnection of humanity with the rest of nature."
—Tod Sloan, PhD, co-editor, Journal for Social Action in Counseling and Psychology
