Ted Talk Friday: Challenges and rewards of a culturally-informed approach to mental health

This Ted Talk was actually a video that was assigned to me for one of my courses. I have not shared too many details about where I am, but in case you’re curious…I am currently a first-year graduate student pursuing my PhD in Counseling Psychology at the University of Louisville. I absolutely love my program and have learned so much since I started nine months ago. After watching this talk for my class, I was so excited to share it here. I think Dere’s philosophy extends beyond the field of mental health; we can all learn something valuable from her message around culture and humility. I particularly  love her idea of taking a “stance of informed curiosity.” I hope you enjoy!

What were your initial assumptions about Pat? Was did you take away from this talk?
