Cultural Literacy in Mental Health: An Indigenous Perspective

Featuring Dr. Leslie Gray
Fri Mar 08, 2013
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

View flier

Join us Friday, March 8 when renowned Native American psychologist Dr. Leslie Gray presents two insightful and transformational workshops.

Morning lecture
Cultural Literacy in Mental Health: An Indigenous Perspective
10 am - 12 noon in Health & Wellness Building 5, Room 202

The current economic crisis exists in casual circularity with a personal and a national "dispiritedness" in America. The country's political stand-off weighs on our daily lives like a slab of concrete. This weight is felt keenly, for example, by returning veterans, LGBTQ persons, at-risk young adults and other marginalized or isolated people, all of whom must push against it if they hope to create an America in which they feel economically safe, socially supported and psychologically healthy.

Afternoon seminar
Ancient Solutions for Modern Dilemmas
2-4 pm in Theatre Building 3

In this experiential seminar we will engage in simple practices of renewal that are perennial. The aim will be restoration and replenishment for those who work in any aspect of our current educational system. You are invited, prior to the seminar, to reflect on or daydream about that which depletes you, or seems to present insurmountable obstacles, in your work; and then to crystallize your musings into a question which you will ask a circle of stones. Science and spirituality converge when we encounter rocks, for they are quite literally our ancestors and as such can be called upon when we need to remember who we are, where we come from and the source of our personal power.
