Teaching & Training within Harvard Medical School
I am currently the Course Director of the McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School Seminar Series in Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Psychology. 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.
I am also involved in the teaching and training of psychiatry and psychology trainees at Boston Children’s Hospital.
National and International Clinical Consultation
Through my work at the Boston Children’s Hospital 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 United States and Canada.
