This book reflects the fruitful dialogue between two regional contexts,
including the encounter of different methodologies, namely the context of Latin
American liberation psychology as inspired by liberation theology and
specifically developed in El Salvador by the Jesuit Ignacio Martín-Baró,
and the context of Eastern African women. The author evaluates in four
case studies the contribution of liberation psychology in overcoming
various forms of gender-related violence in Eastern Africa where she has
worked since 1998 as consultant in trauma work. Her book encourages the
critical reflection of current trauma psychology as well as the
conceptualisation of a globally oriented practical theology.

Simone Lindorfer is a theologian, psychologist and family
therapist and currently works as therapist for survivors of torture. She
is equally a freelance consultant and trainer for psychosocial trauma
work in various African countries.
