The Ackerman Institute for the Family celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. We honor the contributions AAPI people have made towards social justice throughout history. We remember and celebrate AAPI members of the family therapy community who have worked and continue to work tirelessly to provide just and culturally sensitive care.
As an Institute we commit to increasing our capacity to serving AAPI families.
