Dismantling the Inherent Privilege of Self Care

The current understanding and practice of mainstream self-care is rooted in privilege, capitalism, and colonialism. Self-care is often presented as an individualistic approach to supporting one person’s mental health. Self-care alone fails to acknowledge a) the overlapping systems of oppression that affect well-being and b) the role of community care. Collectively, we will dismantle self-care through exploration of anti-oppression frameworks: Trauma Stewardship, Healing Justice, and Community Cultural Wealth.
