The Ackerman Institute for the Family celebrates Black History Month. This year’s theme is Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity. We commit to keeping the beauty in the wide-ranging diversity of Black family life at the center of our work as well as helping trainees and professionals understand and address racial issues in therapy with Black families. The Institute strives on being a community of inclusion, one that celebrates diversity, actively challenges and responds to bias and discrimination. We honor the countless contributions Black people, including those in our Ackerman community, have made towards civil rights, social justice, and the well-being of Black families.
