Internalized Oppression - The Psychology of Marginalized Groups (Paperback): E. J. R. David Internalized Oppression - The Psychology of Marginalized Groups (Paperback)

"It is a great honor to write the foreword to such an important book edited by E.J.R. David, filled with contributions from leading and emerging psychological scholars on internalized oppression. One of the best features of the book, in my opinion, is that the chapter authors are allowed to share their own personal experiences and that such experiences are regarded to be just as valid and legitimate as the 'theories' and 'empirical studies' that they review."

-Eduardo Duran, PhD
7th Direction Therapy, Assessment, and Consulting
Author of Healing the Soul Wound and Co-Author of Native American Postcolonial Psychology"

The oppression of various groups has taken place throughout human history. People are stereotyped, discriminated against, and treated unjustly simply because of their social group membership. But what does it look like when the oppression that people face from the outside gets under their skin? Long overdue, this is the first book to highlight the universality of internalized oppression across marginalized groups in the United States from a mental health perspective. It focuses on the psychological manifestations and mental health implications of internalized oppression for a variety of groups. The book provides insight into the ways in which internalized oppression influences the thoughts, attitudes, feelings, and behaviors of the oppressed toward themselves, other members of their group, and members of the dominant group. It also considers promising clinical and community programs that are currently addressing internalized oppression among specific groups.

The book describes the implications and unique manifestations of internalized oppression among African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska natives, women, people with disabilities, and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. For each group, the text considers its demographic profile, history of oppression, contemporary oppression, common manifestations and mental and behavioral health implications, clinical and community programs, and future directions. Chapters are written by leading and emerging scholars, who share their personal experiences to provide a real-world point of view. Additionally, each chapter is coauthored by a member of a particular community group, who helps to bring academic concepts to life. Key Features:

Addresses the universality of internalized oppression across marginalized groups in the U.S. and its corresponding mental health and psychological manifestations Considers how specific groups exhibit internalized oppression in their own unique ways Provides insight into how internalized oppression influences the thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and behaviors of the oppressed Highlights promising clinical and community programs

Brown Skin, White Minds - Filipino / American Postcolonial Psychology (Hardcover, New): E. J. R. David Brown Skin, White Minds - Filipino / American Postcolonial Psychology (Hardcover, New)

Filipino Americans have a long and rich history with and within the United States, and they are currently the second largest Asian group in the country. However, very little is known about how their historical and contemporary relationship with America may shape their psychological experiences. The most insidious psychological consequence of their historical and contemporary experiences is colonial mentality or internalised oppression. Some common manifestations of this phenomenon are described below: Skin-whitening products are used often by Filipinos in the Philippines to make their skins lighter. Skin whitening clinics and businesses are popular in the Philippines as well. The ""beautiful"" people such as actors and other celebrities endorse these skin-whitening procedures. Children are told to stay away from the sun so they do not get ""too dark."" Many Filipinos also regard anything ""imported"" to be more special than anything ""local"" or made in the Philippines. In the United States, many Filipino Americans make fun of ""fresh-off-the-boats"" (FOBs) or those who speak English with Filipino accents. Many Filipino Americans try to dilute their ""Filipino-ness"" by saying that they are mixed with some other races. Also, many Filipino Americans regard Filipinos in the Philippines, and pretty much everything about the Philippines, to be of ""lower class"" and those of the ""third world."" The historical and contemporary reasons for why Filipino -/ Americans display these attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours - often referred to as colonial mentality - are explored in Brown Skin, White Minds. This book is a peer-reviewed publication that integrates knowledge from multiple scholarly and scientific disciplines to identify the past and current catalysts for such self-denigrating attitudes and behaviours. It takes the reader from indigenous Tao culture, Spanish and American colonialism, colonial mentality or internalized oppression along with its implications on Kapwa, identity, and mental health, to decolonization in the clinical, community, and research settings. This book is intended for the entire community - teachers, researchers, students, and service providers interested in or who are working with Filipinos and Filipino Americans, or those who are interested in the psychological consequences of colonialism and oppression. This book may serve as a tool for remembering the past and as a tool for awakening to address the present.

Introduces readers to the fundamentals of oppression - what it is, who experiences it, and where and when it has taken place. Dissects the layers of oppression - how it is expressed blatantly or subtly and overtly or covertly. Explores how oppression is manifested on different levels including interpersonal, institutional/systemic, and internalized, for a deeper understanding. Demonstrates how oppression influences peoples' thoughts, attitudes, feelings, and behaviors, and how it influences peoples' well-being and health. Explores why certain people are discriminated against simply because of their race, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality and the resulting psychological implications. Highlights what researchers and service providers are doing to address oppression via encouraging community and clinical interventions. Examines why oppression exists and has persisted throughout history and what it looks like today. Recommends future psychological work on oppression across research, clinical, and community contexts. Ideal as a text in upper level undergraduate and beginning graduate courses on oppression, prejudice and discrimination, race relations, ethnic studies, ethnic and racial minorities, multicultural or cross-cultural psychology, multicultural counseling, diversity, women's studies, LGBT studies, disability studies, and social justice taught in psychology, social work, and counseling. Behavioral and mental health providers in both clinical and community contexts will also appreciate this book.
