Voices of Fire, Acts of Courage

Thema Bryant-Davis, Ph.D and Lilian Comaz-Diaz, Ph.D., Eds.
American Psychological Association, 2016

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES The reader will be able to:
Describe womanista and mujerista
• research
• therapy with black women and Latinas
• psycho-spiritual therapy
• creativity
• social-justice action
• the development of leaders and psychology

Thema Bryant-Davis, PhD, is an associate professor of psychology at Pepperdine University. Lillian Comas-D?az, PhD, is a psychologist in private practice and clinical professor at George Washington University's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.

This inspiring book introduces the psychologies of womanists and mujeristas?African American women and Latinas, respectively, who have a broad and inclusive approach to feminism and liberation. Womanist and mujerista values and worldviews emphasize resiliency, strength, activism, self-expression, creativity, spirituality/connection, self-definition, and liberation of all oppressed people. As opposed to much general psychology literature that pathologizes or marginalizes the experiences of African American women and Latinas, this book centralizes their experiences and unpacks the underexplored areas of their historical and contemporary ways of knowing and approaches to living. The chapters integrate findings from multiple disciplines to explore psychology, spirituality, creativity, activism, counseling, healing, research, and leadership from a womanist and mujerista perspective.
