Decolonizing Wellness with Lauren Reid PhD
My guest this episode is Lauren Reid, PhD. Dr. Reid is an Assistant Professor of Counseling and coordinates the multicultural curriculum for the Graduate Program in Counseling at Arcadia University in Pennsylvania. Her research uses a mixed methods design to explore the relationship between cultural factors and coping of Black and Brown folx. She also conducts research on multicultural training and counselors' development. Dr. Reid is a licensed psychologist; her private practice specializes in working with biracial/multiracial people and women of color.
This conversation centered around her research and work with biracial clients but dovetailed into topics like decolonizing therapy, disrupting systems of oppression and white supremacy, motherhood, and even President Obama.
