#477 – Liberation Psychology and The Resilience of Indigenous Peoples with David Walker PhD

David Walker

David Edward Walker, PhD, is a psychologist, researcher, writer, and musician. He’s consulted for 15 years with the 14 Confederated Tribes and Bands of Yakama Nation. His debut indie novel about a strong-hearted Yakama Indian teen and her curmudgeon psychologist, Tessa’s Dance, garnered a medal in the 2013 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) for multicultural fiction, while its sequel, Signal Peak, won a 2013 Foreword Reviews IndieFab Book of the Year Award and was finalist in the 2014 Nancy Pearl Literary Awards. His research aims to expose the Western mental health movement’s historical and contemporary complicity in the oppression of indigenous people. He shared a 2006 Special Educational Needs Academic Book Award with other contributors to Critical New Perspectives on ADHD (Routledge) for his chapter, “ADHD as the new ‘feeblemindedness’ of American Indian Children,” and has also written for Ethical Human Psychology & Psychiatry, International Journal of Critical Psychology, and Journal of Clinical Psychology. He’s also worked as a diversity trainer and has served on faculties for Washington School of Professional Psychology, Heritage University, Oakland University, Wayne State University Medical School, and University of Detroit-Mercy.
