From Tree of Life to the Sun of Life — Katie Christensen


Using the Tree of Life as an example, this paper presents folk psychology as a decolonising practice that elevates the experience, history and wisdom of individuals and collectives, rather than privileging the theories and standards of professional practice. It also demonstrates the possibilities that can emerge when we invite people’s own folk psychology metaphors to guide our practice.
