MDEAT Black Male Youth Mental Health Conference Presentation by Marva Robinson, PsyD

MDEAT has reached back into its archives to highlight a keynote presentation at its second Black Male Youth Mental Health Conference on December 8, 2015, at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami. The conference attracted hundreds of industry professionals from Miami-Dade County Public Schools, local clinical psychologists, and Miami-Dade County Teen Court youth along with many grass root supporters and concerned residents from the surrounding communities.

One of the speakers included Marva Robinson, PsyD, a clinical psychologist from the Greater St. Louis area and President of the St. Louis Association of Black Psychologists. She spoke about the psychological impacts of excessive force and referenced her experience in help people deal with the psychological aftermath of the Ferguson tragedy.
