Description
Please join us as Bob Weathers Ph.D, of Beginnings Treatment Centers shares his personal and professional experience of working with culturally diverse populations in navigating recovery from addiction. He will address culture-wide stigma toward both addiction and recovery as well as nuanced expressions of familial shame within specific subcultures. He will also explore the relevance of a restorative justice paradigm, that can be applied within subcultures more oriented toward collective responsiveness.

Kansas Department of Health and Environment through cooperative agreement H80CS00131 funding.
