WWV2020-Gender-Based Violence Awareness
Gender-Based Violence (GBV), also known as Sexual and Gender Based Violence, is a function of patriarchy and millennia of socialization in cultures worldwide. GBV serves to keep the "lesser genders" in a place of subservience and fear. It is pervasive. It is global.
World Mental Health Day - 2020
Everyone who works with me knows that I sign up for every webinar relevant to our cause. This September 20th and 21st, I had the privilege of attending a summit hosted by the Global Youth Mental Health Association, or GYMHA. The title of the summit was "Global Stress Management Revolutions.” The first speaker, Dr. Berman Ahmed, re-iterated and expanded on what I have known for the last 20 years since working in-depth with disadvantaged youth in residential and school settings. I recently had a conversation with a colleague, who echoed the same sentiments.
