Social Work Visiting Scholar
October 25, 2012
Dr. Dolores Finger Wright, associate professor of Social Work at Delaware State University, is spending the fall semester at Wheelock as a Social Work Visiting Scholar. During her stay, she will be continuing her research and work on relational cultural theory, guest lecturing in several social work courses, and making a public presentation about Relational Cultural Theory.
Her presentation, which will be November 13, is titled "Connections Work for Social Work and Other Interested Parties: A discussion about the Relational Cultural Theory and How its Application can Transform Lives." Dr. Wright will share her insights and experiences on Relational Cultural Theory (RCT), and the transformational impacts it has within social work practice. She will explore specifically how RCT has served as the theoretical framework for a gender-sensitive approach to substance abuse and family therapy training for service providers in many countries throughout Africa, Europe, and South/Central America.
Dr. Wright's talk is co-sponsored by the Social Work Department & the Center for Research & Scholarship.
It will be held Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 7-8 p.m. in the Ladd Room at Wheelock's Brookline campus, 43 Hawes St.
