The Future of Social Justice in Psychology: Recollections and Social-Historical Contexts
Runtime - 56 minutes
Bertha G. Holliday, Ph.D. presents at the 2011 Teachers College Annual Winter Roundtable at Columbia University.
Dr. Holliday discusses the intersections of race/ethnicity, diversity and social justice, and includes an overview of psychology’s social justice efforts. Assessment of the impact of these and similar efforts suggests that future such efforts might be guided less by legal concepts/remedies (e.g., equal opportunity, equity) and more by principles of diversity (e.g., empowerment, inclusiveness, systems behavioral change) that are more responsive to issues of privilege, power, and context. Diversity is defined relative to its similarities with and differences from other related concepts. Major elements and intended outcomes of diversity are identified and critical types of diversity efforts and challenges are described. It is noted that diversity can be a major tool for reducing both violence to individuals and organizations, and risks of community/organization implosion.
