34th Annual Winter Roundtable Conference

February 24, 2017 - February 25, 2017

The Winter Roundtable is the longest running continuing professional education program in the United States devoted solely to cultural issues in psychology and education. The Winter Roundtable will continue its tradition of bringing together scholars, practitioners, researchers, social change agents and students interested in the intersections between race, ethnicity, social class, gender, ability status, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation in psychology and education.

This year's theme, From Ferguson to Flint: Multicultural Competencies for Community Based Trauma celebrates 34 years of accomplishment in the face of oppression, stigma, and trauma, and encourages emerging scholars and elders to continue building tools to heal from oppression and support marginalized communities.

We will emphasize research and interventions in community, school, and family settings, as well as individual development, regarding a wide range of topics, including language, literacy, access, wellness, cultural values, and experiences with discrimination and empowerment.
