Subject:Dr. Mia Smith Bynum on the Resilience of Black Families, Past and Present, April 23

Join us on Friday, April 23, 2021 from 2:30-3:30 pm Central (12:30 Pacific, 1:30 Mountain, 3:30 Eastern) for a new Life Paths Research Center webchat. In our next webchat, we will be joined by Dr. Mia Smith-Bynum, Associate Professor of Family Science and Director of the Black Families Research Group in the School of Public Health at the University of Maryland-College Park. She will be answering questions about Black social and political resilience and Black cultural strengths. A clinical psychologist by training, Dr. Smith Bynum is an expert in African American mental health, family interaction and communication in ethnic minority families, parenting, and racial identity. She also has expertise in adolescent mental health, adolescent sexual behavior, and parent-adolescent communication about difficult topics. She is co-author of the Multidimensional Model of Racial Identity (MMRI) and the Multidimensional Inventory of Black Identity (MIBI). Dr. Smith-Bynum is the two-term Chair of the Black Caucus of the Society for Research in Child Development. Her research has been supported by external grants from several entities, including the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. She holds a doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of Virginia. She completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in child and family development at the University of Georgia. Dr. Bynum will be chatting with Dr. Shawn Jones, Assistant Professor in the Counseling Program in the Psychology Department at Virginia Commonwealth University, and Ms. Elon Epps, class of ’20 University of the South and Admission Counselor at Hendrix College. These webchats are wide-ranging discussions of research, practice, and professional development. So much wisdom is never communicated in journal articles or traditional conference presentations. This is one effort to help increase accessibility to all the skills and decisions that are needed for successful research, practice, and mentoring. This webchat is offered at no cost, but we encourage donations to support the work of Life Paths to reduce the burden of trauma, promote thriving, and help us sustain staff hours during the pandemic.
