Teaching & Training

I am currently the course Co-Director of the McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School Seminar Series in Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Psychology with my colleague Dr. Lauren Wadsworth. This is a comprehensive training series for current McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School Psychology Interns in their last year of clinical psychology doctoral training.

With my colleague Dr. Stephanie Pinder-Amaker, I am Co-Director and Co-Founder of the McLean Hospital Multicultural Psychology Consultation Team, a systems capacity building model for culturally-responsive interventions. With my colleagues at MPCT we developed www.multiculturalpsychology.com a website of free resources for those interested in culturally-responsive, evidence-informed interventions.

Through my work at the Refugee Trauma and Resilience Center I consult to providers and programs on culturally-responsive, evidence-based practice for youth and families of refugee and immigrant backgrounds. This work occurs across the North American continent — in 2018 I provided consultation to providers/programs in Massachusetts, Maine, Louisiana, Utah, Alberta, and Ontario.

I have presented numerous research and clinical talks/workshops throughout the United States focused on (1) evidence-based psychological intervention, (2) culturally-responsive practice, (3) diversity & inclusion, (4) working with refugee and immigrant communities, and (5) other aspects of clinical psychology, behavioral health, and developmental psychopathology.

Recent presentations include talks at Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, McLean Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, William James College, and the Boston Public School System.

If you are interested in potentially having me, or one of my colleagues, come speak or train members of your organization, please get in touch!
