PUTTING THE SCIENCE OF AFRICAN PSYCHOLOGY INTO PRACTICE
Time & Location
About The Event
As we begin to think about the meaning and consequences of multiple global crises, our community must simultaneously consider how to respond and heal. This session is designed to guide attendees through the foundational science of African Psychology and to provide practical methods for putting it into practice. Learn what makes African Psychology a distinct science uniquely situated to provide the tools necessary for healing among people of African ancestry.
Dr. Nobles is the author of over 100 publications and is a globally renowned speaker. His work, **Seeking the Sakhu**, is a foundational text in African Psychology. Dr. Nobles reminds us that our role as healers must be in alignment with Sakhu or the study of the illumination of the human spirit. This drastically differs from western psychological theories focused solely on the study of behavior. In this session, we explore the importance of situating spirit and its illumination at the core of our work as healers.

In support of the work of Dr. Wade Nobles, the Faculty Development Teaching, & Advising Center at Morehouse College has joined us to provide continuing education credit for mental health professionals and educators for this program. Morehouse College is a SACS accredited HBCU (Historical Black College & University) located in Atlanta, Georgia USA.
NOTE: Although A Healing Paradigm is an approved APA, NBCC, NASP, and ASWB CE Provider, continuing education will be issued via the Morehouse College Faculty Development Teaching, & Advising Center. This is done in honor of Dr. Nobles' work that is focused on the internal validation and evaluation of healing strategies designed for people of African ancestry. While many states accept continuing education sponsored by a regionally accredited institution, all professionals are encouraged to check the requirements for continuing education with their state licensure board. In states where this is not permissible, therapists can count attendance as self-instruction/general continuing education hours.
A Healing Paradigm has partnered with the Faculty Development, Teaching, & Advising Center at Morehouse College to offer a series of sessions for faculty, staff, mental health professionals, and the community. Dr. Monique Earl-Lewis serves as the co-convener of this series. She is an Associate Professor in Africana Studies & Director of the Center. As an organizational psychologist, Dr. Earl-Lewis is committed to partnering with community organizations to advance the unique mission of Morehouse of College that includes advancing knowledge of Black life, history, and culture. A Healing Paradigm is excited to form this partnership with Dr. Earl-Lewis and her staff.
