Queer Attachment An Anti-Oppression Toolkit for Relational Healing
Published by Microcosm Publishing
5.5"x8.5" 48p, b+w
Fizz Perkal and Leah Jo Carnine were both drawn to "self-help" books because of the strong tools for self-growth they can provide, but found themselves alienated by frameworks that all too often are written by straight, white, cismen. Their work weaves together mainstream attachment theory with study of trauma and the nervous system, with a focus on bringing in the knowledge of the queer and PoC practitioners in this field. This zine offers a guide to healing that is rooted in social justice, considerate of diverse identities, and deeply aware of how mental health is tied to systems of oppression.
