In this Common Hour hosted by Adler Student Government and the Hispanic/Latinx Student Association, we will delve in to community psychology as it relates to Latinx communities’ mental health needs.
As mental health professionals who wish to be socially responsible practitioners, we know that cultural competency means much more than calling for greater diversity in study samples. It means learning about the communities behind the numbers, their relationship with mental health, their history, their art, and their contributions to our world.
In this way, we can push mental health boundaries beyond traditional cultural competency towards enacting social justice in our work.
Featuring: Dr. Josefina Alvarez, Professor Emerita at Adler in the Department of Psychology, Chicago Campus, previously holding leadership positions related to diversity and inclusion with research focused on the development of culturally competent behavioral health interventions.
