Vikki Reynolds: Resisting the neutral and medicalised language of psychology

Wednesday, 3 April 2019 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Vikki Reynolds joined the show to talk about the way psychological based responses and language can cause harm and obscure the impact of oppression and social structures on the wellbeing of people and communities.  Vikki talked about the limitations of self care, collective care and spoke in the context of the current opioid epedemic in Vancouver, Canada. 

Vikki is a Psychotherapist, Adjunct Professor and Activist based in Canada, where she supervises and supports frontline workers and activists who work alongside marginalised communities.  Vikki has a deep commitment to social justice and her work is based on an anti-oppression and decolonizing framework that puts the spirit of solidarity and ethics at the forefront.
