Psychology for the people is a space for thinking about how our individual thoughts and feelings, along with our interpersonal relationships and interactions have been shaped by our society. This involves an exploration of how our separate and collective conscious and unconscious psyche’s have been impacted by our environments, history, culture, families, perceptions, etc. Through a reflective process of my personal development, my work as a clinician, and my participation and observation of the communities I belong to, I hope to offer some insight into some common issues being faced and ways to begin working through these issues. My post will focus on communities of color, with an emphasis on African-Americans and children, as these are my areas of expertise and passion. Through acknowledgement and increased awareness of our suffering and the fostering of resilience and psychological healing, we can change, grow, and experience true mental health.
