Lecture Thursday at URock: Culturally Appropriate Care - What the Youth Are Saying

By University College at Rockland | Oct 16, 2012
Kathleen Fox, PhD will speak on Thursday at noon at URock about culturally supported care for youth.

In the final lecture of the fall URock Rap Colloquia Series, faculty member, Kathleen Fox, PhD will present the results of a summer study of mental health needs among Mohawk young adults of New York State.

In her qualitative research project, Fox concludes, "Returning to their roots can help young people with difficulties go back to their own cultures and keep from getting into trouble." Fox contends that in small communities where community members are not anonymous, there are traditional support systems that support youth and keep them from making negative choices. Fox will take her findings with the Mohawks and relate the same findings to young people in the mid-coast and Maine island communities. Discussion will follow her presentation.

The URock Rap Colloquia series is free and open to the public. Fox's lecture will be held on Thursday, October 18 from noon to 1:00PM.  For more information contact University College at Rockland, Breakwater Building, at 596-6906.
