Evolution of Discourse: Identifying Sikolohiyang Pilipino in the Classroom (2019)
Abstract: This project is a literature review examining the breadth and evolution of Sikolohiyang Pilipino (Filipino Psychology) and identifying its place in educational settings. This review will articulate Sikolohiyang Pilipino’s deviation from the traditional Westernized discourse, which focuses on a clinical context, towards a more generalized scope that encompasses Filipino identity. By examining the curriculum of various Filipino studies courses taught throughout California, and by comparing their content with the tenets of Sikolohiyang Pilipino, the review will investigate the extent to which Sikolohiyang Pilipino is already embedded in existing curricula and consider how its presence could be enhanced.
