Systematic Decolonization is an application of decolonizing theory
Systematic Decolonization (formerly known as Functional Decolonization or FD)...
Deconstructs complex problems and restructures processes to yield equitable, just, and sustainable outcomes.
Incorporates principles of sociology, cognitive behavioral psychology, linguistics, institutional organizational psychology, and traditional and Indigenous knowledge, as well as diverse lived experience.
Has existing applications in clinical research, curriculum, medicine & healthcare delivery, institutional organizational culture, and psychedelic sciences, with many prospective initiatives underway.
Is deliberately accessible, flexible, and designed to work with the resources that you have on hand.
There is no “right” way to decolonize. Systematic Decolonization leaves learners empowered, equipped, & aware on their own decolonizing journey by strategically laying stepping stones for decolonizing processes & bridging colonial & extra/paracolonial ways of knowing & being.
