Coyote’s Swing author David Walker is a keynote speaker for the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP) 25th annual conference, October 27-29, 2023 to be held in Marina del Rey, California.

Using a traditional Yakama tale as a motif, Coyote’s Swing combines the author’s firsthand experiences as a consulting psychologist with rare history and sociocultural critique, revealing how the U.S. mental health system reframes Native American reactions to oppression and marginalization into “mental disorders” and “mental illness,” and how the Indian Health Service’s contemporary practices echo historical injustices.
