About this event
Recent events have sharply unveiled to the broader population the generations of abuse and discrimination that have been inflicted upon the black community, particularly in North America. Undoubtedly, individual and collective race-based trauma has been and continues to be a problem for black people. Furthermore, the experiences within this demographic have traditionally been an afterthought in mental health research.
In this timely webinar - moderated by Chief Psychologist (USA) Dr. Dominique Morisano - clinical psychologist and thought-leader Dr. Monnica Williams will discuss the promise of psychedelic medicine in promoting individual and collective healing in the black community, the need for culturally-informed approaches to psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and the importance of including the voices of marginalized communities in psychedelic research.
Monnica Williams, Ph.D. is a board-certified, licensed clinical psychologist, specializing in cognitive-behavioural therapies. She is an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology at the University of Ottawa, Canada Research Chair in Mental Health Disparities, and Director of the Laboratory for Culture and Mental Health Disparities.
