Ken Hardy, Internationally Recognized Clinician, Author, to Address Lasell Community at Annual Talk
September 26, 2012
Dr. Ken Hardy, an internationally recognized clinician, author, and Director of the Eikenberg Institute for Relationships in New York City, will speak to the Lasell College community as this year's Distinguished Donahue Scholar.
Hardy's talk, "Race: Why does it (still) have us walking on egg-shells?," will take place in de Witt Hall on the Lasell campus at 12:30 pm on October 2.
The talk is free and open to the public and is part of an annual speaker series hosted by Lasell's Nancy Lawson Donahue ‘49 Institute for Values and Public Life.
Hardy, currently a professor in the Couple and Family Therapy Department at Drexel University, also maintains a private practice specializing in working with traumatized and oppressed populations.
His talk will focus on why, despite measurable progress made in virtually all domains of society, the phenomenon of race continues to be a significant event in our lives and remains one of the most challenging issues of our time.
His address will take a critical look at the phenomenon of race and how it organizes every fiber of our lives and our relationships with each other. Specific attention will be devoted to the dissemination of strategies for effectively addressing, negotiating, and resolving race-related issues within individual relationships, communities, and institutions.
