In this book, twelve eminent Latina psychologists illustrate how they practice gender- and culture-sensitive psychotherapy, counseling, research, pedagogy, social justice, and mentoring. They share how they create their own path in the midst of oppression—by becoming aware of the connection between their lives and their gendered, cultural, social, and political circumstances—and how they liberate themselves and those who seek their psychological services. Based on lived experiences, they reveal how they integrate a borderlands theory, a testimonio method, and an embodiment analysis into a Latina feminist psychology. More importantly, these Latina psychologists offer easy-to-follow advice to help readers thrive while living in the cultural borderlands.
