2016 Newsletter, Community Psychology, Liberation Psychology & Ecopsychology Specialization, Pacifica Graduate Institute

Dear Friends,

Please enjoy this year’s Hearing Voices, our newsletter from the Community Psychology, Liberation Psychology, Ecopsychologyspecialization of the M.A./Ph.D. Depth Psychology Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA.
This newsletter highlights some of the socially and environmentally transformative work of our students and faculty. Our students engage each year in community and ecopsychological fieldwork and research in a wide variety of contexts around issues they are passionate about. Through coursework and fieldwork experiences, they are preparing themselves to meet the needs of their communities through work in non-profits, schools and colleges, foundations, social movements, community groups, and academic-community partnerships. They are contributing to an eco-liberation psychology approach to the environmental, community, and cultural issues that challenge us today.
Some of the highlights this year include a section, “For the Sake of New Justice,” that focuses on the work of students within the carceral system and in efforts “outside” for restorative justice; the outcome of meetings between Students of Color and Racial Justice Allies in “Why Groups for People-of-Color and Racial Justice Allies”; and the initiation of a exchange program with Colegio de la Frontera Norte as part of our Borderlands Initiative.” We welcome your interest!
Please forward to friends and colleagues who might be interested.  We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2016.  We welcome your interest!  Please follow the link to Hearing Voices Volumes 1-3.
Mary Watkins, Nuria Ciofalo and Susan James, Professors
