Occupational Therapy
Abstract
Critical thinkers within the international occupational therapy profession are challenging the culturally-specific and value-laden assumptions that underpin dominant models of occupation and modes of practice, and are advocating the adoption of critical perspectives. This book addresses these concerns, employing an evidence-informed approach that helps readers recognize specific social structures and ideological assumptions that inform occupational therapy?s research, theories and practices; how these same factors create and reinforce conditions that impact people?s abilities to participate in occupations; and how they perpetuate inequitable occupational opportunities, thereby undermining the wellbeing of marginalized people and populations. Drawing from a wealth of cross-cultural research evidence the author demonstrates that occupation is a determinant of human health and wellbeing, and is thus a human right.

Abstract
Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo explores how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

Abstract
"The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it -- and then dismantle it." Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America -- but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. ... Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it. ... an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism. How to Be an Antiracist is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.

Abstract
"There is an obesity epidemic in this country and poor black women are particularly stigmatized as "diseased" and a burden on the public health care system. This is only the most recent incarnation of the fear of fat black women, which Sabrina Strings shows took root more than two hundred years ago. Strings weaves together an eye-opening historical narrative ranging from the Renaissance to the current moment, analyzing important works of art, newspaper and magazine articles, and scientific literature and medical journals--where fat bodies were once praised--showing that fat phobia, as it relates to black women, did not originate with medical findings, but with the Enlightenment era belief that fatness was evidence of "savagery" and racial inferiority. The author argues that the contemporary ideal of slenderness is, at its very core, racialized and racist. Indeed, it was not until the early twentieth century, when racialized attitudes against fatness were already entrenched in the culture, that the medical establishment began its crusade against obesity. An important and original work, Fearing the Black Body argues convincingly that fat phobia isn't about health at all, but rather a means of using the body to validate race, class, and gender prejudice."
Contents: Introduction: the original epidemic -- Being Venus -- Plump women and thin, fine men -- The rise of the big black woman -- Birth of the ascetic aesthetic -- American beauty: the reign of the slender aesthetic -- Thinness as American exceptionalism -- Good health to uplift the race -- Fat, revisited -- Epilogue: the obesity epidemic.

"Allies and Advocates is about inclusion in everyday business life. Inclusion and diversity are topics that touch everything we do. For us to move away from the age of racial discrimination and injustice, we need everyone involved and everyone to know how they should show up to support BIPOC at work and beyond. This book provides straightforward information and action items to make any workplace more inclusive. A lot of books are not simple enough and they don't use accessible examples. Allies and Advocates simplifies complex topics, gives real-world examples, and provides tactics to help everyone see their own role in creating an inclusive work environment."-

Psychic trauma
Abstract
"Exploring intergenerational trauma in Indigenous communities--and strategies for healing--with provocative prose and an empathetic approach. Indigenous peoples have shockingly higher rates of addiction, depression, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions than other North Americans. According to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, these are a result of intergenerational trauma: the unresolved terror, anger, fear, and grief created in Indigenous communities by the painful experiences of colonialism, passed down from generation to generation. How are we to turn this desperate tide? With passionate argumentation and chillingly clear prose, author and educator Suzanne Methot uses her own and others' stories to trace the roots of colonial trauma and the mechanisms by which trauma has become intergenerational, and she explores the Indigenous ways of knowing that can lead us toward change."
Contents: How things work, and why stories matter -- What it means to be colonized -- Becoming human -- The angry Indian and a culture of blame -- Invisible roots -- Fractured narratives -- What the body remembers -- Sacred being -- Recreating the structures of belonging -- Killing the Wittigo.
