For this special session, Dr. Abdulrehman will be joined by Dr. Monnica Williams. Dr. Williams has conducted clinical research on psychological and pharmacological treatments of OCD, PTSD, and anxiety disorders. Her research interests also include the role of culture and race on mental illness. This webinar will be presented in interview format with Dr. Williams highlighting the personal lived experience and life journey of Dr. Abdulrehman and how it led to his work in cultural competence and antiracism. This session will include:

  1. A review of Dr. Abdulrehman’s personal history
  2. A discussion on how racism increases doubt despite expertise
  3. A description of how his personal journey with racism led him to rely on the combination of lived experience and professional training and experience to write his new book

Dr. Abdulrehman uses his skills as a clinician, researcher, and his lived experience as both a person of color and an immigrant, to provide a unique perspective that helps coach and guide those in leadership to gain insight and make effective change that matters. His engaging style and use of storytelling, help make the science of topics such as microaggressions, privilege, and representation, understandable and relatable to experiences we all hold as members of a larger human society, be it as a member of a minority or majority culture. His advice is practical, actionable and creates real change, from the inside out. He works internationally, primarily in North America, Africa and the Middle East, bridging his familiarity with all those cultures.
