Decolonizing Psychology with Dr. Becky Choma, Anik Obomsawin and Jaiden Herkimer

In this episode, we explore the integration of Indigenous perspectives into psychology education with guests, Dr. Becky Choma, a social and political psychology professor at Toronto Metropolitan University, and graduate students Anik Obomsawin and Jaiden Herkimer. They discuss the purposeful process they undertook to begin developing a new course on Indigenous Peoples and Psychology, which is being designed to address the impacts of colonialism on psychological research, teaching, and practice. The conversation covers the importance of collaboration with Indigenous scholars, the challenges of decolonizing academic curricula, and the need for ongoing support and relationality in these efforts. The episode offers valuable insights into how psychology can evolve to better include Indigenous knowledge and perspectives. Read the transcript: https://tinyurl.com/ycydyumd
