Exploring the Diverse Mental Health Needs of the African American Family-December 5, 2013

TIME: 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM

Come join Dr. Bree Davis in a discussion on how the African American Family Studies Program at Pacific Oaks College is working to empower communities and train clinicians to think about healing and wellness for the whole person.

Based on the principle of Ujima, this one-of-a-kind program utilizes the strengths of the African American family. The culture centered approach is the basis for a collective, cohort-based learning experience and pedagogical model for culturally relevant curriculum. The program seeks to recruit, educate and develop mental health professionals who possess cultural sensitivity and a clear, in-depth understanding of the specific mental health needs of the African American community.
