— The African-American Cultural Split —
September 6, 2019 1p.m. – 4p.m.
A provocative and revealing examination of African American Culture beneath the surface. We will explore intra-psychic generational experiences starting with slavery and how these are manifested through the “Cultural DNA” of non-monolithic African American clients, neighbors, friends and others. You will increase awareness regarding the misconceptions and challenges associated with understanding and more effectively working with African Americans. Portions of the presentation will include excerpts from Dr. Carol Dweck’s book; Mindset: The New Psychology of Success and movie clips from “Dangerous Minds”.
