Lourdes Arguelles

Lourdes Arguelles received her Ph.D. at New York University from the Division of Behavioral Sciences, Center for Human Relations and Community Studies of the School of Education. Her concentrations were in Psychology and Sociology. She did post-doctoral work in law and psychiatry at Osgood Hall Law School at York University in Canada and in ethnic studies at the Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA. Dr. Arguelles is a licensed marriage, child, and family therapist in the state of California.

Her theoretical interests in the political economy and the spirituality of everyday life and her commitment to social and ecological justice and non-human animal welfare were shaped by the experience of the Cuban socialist revolution, by her studies with Buddhist teachers in India, Japan, Thailand, and Burma, and with a Chinese Qi-Qong master in the U.S. They were also greatly influenced by living and working with refugees and indigenous peoples throughout the world. Community, labor, and environmental organizing work in the inner cities of Montreal, New York, Miami, Florida, and in US-Mexico border cities and clinical practice with people living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of political and family torture, and with women of color and sexual minorities, have led her to an interest in the development of critical psychological modalities of care and ecologically-based educational practices, as well as to an interest in the field of gender and feminist studies. Dr. Arguelles' experience of growing up in an extended family system in the Caribbean and her life experiences in non-advanced industrial parts of the world have greatly contributed to her work in narrative research and storytelling pedagogy.
