This will be an on-line webinar using Zoom.us
July 25, 2020
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM CDT
This Webinar plática is a recognition, re-connection and celebration of the wellness and healthy ways of living that are present in our community as well as our ancestral legacy of health and healing. Negative stereotypes portray our culture as being unhealthy. We are do not have an unhealthy culture. The unwellness in our community (currently & historically) comes from colonization, marginalization, exclusion, and oppression. Our culture is ancient and powerful. We can Live Brown and Live Well! Lessons from Chicanx Psychology can help DECOLONIZE the ideas of “wellness” that are dominantly Eurocentric, Western, and individualistic. Chicanx Psychology emphasizes the healthy, positive cultural values and behaviors that contribute to our wellness and mental health. We will draw from knowledge of our ancestral past as well as our current wisdom. We’ll talk about Chicanx Wellness, Well-being, and what that looks like in our lives today! Chicanx Psychology is about community liberation and healing.

This platica sounds very interesting and totally relevant to today’s issues. Is this platica or Program affiliated with any University?
Hello Ron! Thank you for your comment. We are a stand alone community organization based out of Austin, Texas. Last year we began offering more Webinars and on-line offerings to make our platicas and trainings more available. Please let me know if you have any further questions!
I have been trying all afternoon to register for the 6 classes starting Thursday January 14th and haven’t been able to. I want to pay with a credit card as I don’t have either PayPal or Venmo. I really want to attend this class so please get back to me ASAP. Thank you
I sent you a reply email! Thank you, Yolanda for letting us know!
