Episode 98 is an interview with Dr. Evan Auguste, an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Boston and a pre-licensed clinical psychologist at Ma’at Psychological Services. We delved into the concept of Black Liberation psychology, a crucial field aimed at addressing the mental health repercussions of structural anti-Blackness. Dr. Auguste's work focuses on developing community-based health interventions, like the Sawubona Healing Circles, that promote healing through an African-centered framework. We also dive into the history and initiatives of the Association for Black Psychologists.
