The American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW), which is proudly housed at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, launches a new webinar series on systemic racism, featuring Fellows of the AASWSW who are subject experts.
The series launches with Systemic Racism and Mental Health. David Takeuchi, professor at the University of Washington, and Sean Joe, professor of social development at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, will be interviewed on the subject by Laura Abrams, professor of social welfare at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
The U.S. Surgeon General's Report on mental health problems among underrepresented minorities, published in 2002, suggested a significant contribution from systemic racism. Since that time, scholars have uncovered links between the two phenomena. This webinar uses an interview format to explore recent evidence of the link between systemic racism and mental health.
The webinar will be generously hosted bia the Brown School Open Classroom Initiative site.
