Virtual Discussion | February 25th at 6:30 PM | Fairfield Yabantu

RSVP for registration link. Please join Fairfield Yabantu for an essential conversation hosted by The Unquowa School IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Antiracism) Committee featuring Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Hawthorne Smith, Director of the Bellevue Program for Survivors of Torture.

Dr. Smith is an Associate Clinical Professor at the NYU School of Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry. He has facilitated a support group for French-speaking African survivors of torture for the past 25 years and also speaks extensively at professional conferences and seminars on providing clinical services for survivors of socio-political violence, and enhancing cross-cultural clinical skills among therapeutic service providers.

Tré met Mr. Smith many years ago when he was an 11 year old refugee who had recently come to New York from South Africa. We are excited to have him present on the topic of racial trauma and young people and offer a comprehensive look based on his experiences counseling refugees through their healing journeys.
