Written by psychologists, mental health care providers, and researchers, the contributions in this volume challenge inequities from myriad personal and professional perspectives. Many of the contemporary and novel methods used to confront inequities discussed in this book capitalize on the strengths of culturally grounded approaches to help and treatment. These include radical healing, training young people of color in civic engagement, and embracing how spirituality and creativity can help people and communities solve problems and thrive in adverse circumstances. From reconsidering the #MeToo movement to proposing powerful ways to prevent the further legal and cultural prosecution of immigrants in the United States, this book proposes solutions to the most harmful and visible inequity problems across the country. As the only book that addresses the psychology of inequity at the personal and national levels and across different cultural contexts, this volume is a must-read for those looking to solve inequity problems and help victims heal from their insidious effects.
