Increasingly, Latinx people are more open and actively seeking counseling and therapy as a source of healing. At the same time many in our familias still believe it is only for the “locos” or the “blancos”, but the root of this belief is not unfounded. The history of psychology has been used as a tool of white supremacy for centuries. We will talk to Cristalis Capielo Rosario, Ph.D and Professor at Arizona State University about her journey and her culture shock after moving from the island of Puerto Rico to the U.S. South, loving psychology and also navigating racism and sexism as a student, and her passion to create culturally grounded theory and practice in the field. Also listen to great advice form Dr. Capielo Rosario on what to look for in a therapist and how to best exercise your own agency!
