Post- and Decolonial Approaches: Theoretical Perspectives and Insights for Work and Organisations
Aboriginal Populations in the Mind. Critical Whiteness in Psychotherapy and Counselling
25th May 3:00-5:00 pm
Prof. Dr. Martina Tißberger (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria)
"Aboriginal Populations in the Mind. Critical Whiteness in Psychotherapy and Counselling"
Venue: KLE 01 EG 5, hybrid
“Counselling methods used in the social sciences come predominantly from the discipline of psychology – more precisely – they are derived from psychotherapy methods. The human image of psychology, on the other hand, is deeply anchored in a colonial episteme. The lecture will shed light on the importance of this connection for counseling and therapy, but also present ways in which decolonial counseling and therapy can be practiced from a critical whiteness perspective.”
“Post- and Decolonial Approaches: Theoretical Perspectives and Insights for Work and Organisations”
Summer Term 2022
Faculty of Society and Economics
Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences
(on campus / hybrid)
The lecture series aims to give insights into post- and decolonial theories and research, opening up a critical view on organisations as a main site and mode of societal reproduction in postindustrial economies. Based on these, we want to discuss basic concepts such as cooperation and inclusion, intersectionality, and global entanglement and insights we can gain for work and organizations. The lecture series is part of the module „Organisation Studies“ in the study program Gender and Diversity, B.A., taught by Prof. Dr. Ingrid Jungwirth.
The lectures take place in a hybrid format on campus in Kleve (KLE 01 EG 5) and are open to all students and staff of Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences as well as to an audience external to the university.
