We are delighted to announce to our ABPsi friends and family that the NJABPsi Executive Board is working in conjunction with the staff of Mayor Ras Baraka of the city of Newark to bring to you an anti-violence symposium entitled "Public Health Matters: Breaking Barriers and Generating Solutions." This event is scheduled for Saturday, September 19th, 2015 and promises to be informative, stimulating, and timely.
This dialogue is long overdue. Violence is indeed a public health issue. Black people suffer from violence from within and without our community the sequela of which is extraordinarily insidious. The rates of homicide, suicide, domestic violence, child abuse, and interpersonal violence endanger our very existence; while the violence of a corrupt judicial system, a bogus educational system, tyrannical governmental agencies, and a system of structural racist oppression ensure the annihilation of our humanity. Psychologists and other professional helpers have a critical role in this reality. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us as we chip away at what we have allowed to become an elephant in our room.
The Honorable Mayor Ras Baraka will address us at this event and one of our very own stars, Dr. Paulette Hines, will be one of the presenters/ panelists for this event. Please note that CEUs are being sought and information on this and other details will be disseminated as it becomes available.
