Seventh Annual Rocky Mountain Humanistic Counseling and Psychological Association Conference

Conference Theme

Frantz Fanon (1925-1961) was born in Martinique and trained in psychiatry in France before practicing in Algeria and Tunisia. Despite dying at age 36, he made significant contributions through his psychological writings, innovations to psychological practice, and political writings. His writings have long been under-appreciated in psychology, including most of humanistic and existential psychology. Much of his psychological writings focused on issues of colonization and racism. Throughout his writing and work, Fanon advocated for a new humanism. This new humanism would embrace the humanity and dignity of all people, including the marginalized and oppressed.

While we will consider proposals that do not focus on Fanon or a new humanism, including proposals on a wide array of topics relevant to humanistic, existential, and transpersonal psychology, we will give preferential review to presentations that consider Fanon and/or a new humanism, particularly for the live presentations. We recognize that many are unfamiliar with Fanon’s work. For those wishing to engage Fanon’s writing to integrate into their presentation, we are developing Frantz Fanon Resource Page. Additionally, we will be developing a number of short videos on Fanon that will be available on our YouTube page and linked to from the Fanon resource page.
