Ecopsychosocial Accompaniment: Re-Membering and Common-ing
The Euro-American individualistic paradigm that undergirds much of psychological theory and practice blinds us to the historical context and legacies of colonialism, capitalism, and racism that continue to afflict us: the enclosure of commons for accumulation of profit, and slavery-forced migrations that broke familial and community relationships, as well as relationships to land and place. The parallel criminalisation of the poor in order to create free labour led to prisons and policing, disproportionately affecting black and brown peoples. How are we to re-member our relations to the Earth and to our neighbours, citizen and non-citizen? What are the affective labour and relational actions that remain undone for us to re-engage in common-ing – the co-creation of just and sustainable relationships? How might shifting clinical practice toward ecopsychosocial accompaniment assist in supporting and building commons?
