Center for Humanistic Change is excited to host the 2017 Elementary SAP Consortium at two times. The presentation is: Reducing Disparities and Improving Outcomes: A Primer on Everyday Trauma, Learning, and Behavior.

Guest Presenter, Christopher Liang, PhD is an Associate Professor and Training Director of the Counseling Psychology program at Lehigh University. He studies:

• the role of coping and cognitive processes in the association between perceived ethnic discrimination and mental health outcomes among people of color;
• the role of masculinity in the health-related and sexual behaviors of men, with a focus on help-seeking and preventing gender-based violence;
• the intersections of gender, culture, and perceived discrimination in the lives of ethnic minority women and men in the United States; and
• the effectiveness of a modified evidence-based school-based intervention on the academic well-being of youth of color in urban settings.

Dr. Liang has worked with schools and community-based agencies to strengthen their capacity to serve diverse children, youth, and families. Dr. Liang currently serves on the Editorial Board of the Psychology of Men and Masculinity and is a past President of Division 51 (Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity) of the American Psychological Association. He coauthored the book, Handbook of Multicultural Measures, co-edited The Costs of Racism for People of Color: Contextualizing Experiences of Discrimination, and has authored over 30 peer-review manuscripts and book chapters.
