April 27th,2017 ICNY Latest News

Dr. Mary Ragan, LCSW

The Social Work and Religious Diversity conference introduces social service and mental health care providers to religious diversity by introducing them to their colleagues from diverse faith traditions.  We will explore the topics of the religious lives of New York families, how faith communities sometimes function as extended families, and how interfaith families contend with religious diversity in the home.

Providing final reflection on this day will be Dr. Mary Ragan, LCSW, Executive Director of the Psychotherapy and Spirituality Institute, and an Adjunct Professor at the Columbia University School of Social Work, where she regularly teaches a course on “Spirituality and Social Work.”  In addition to her work as a clinician, administrator, and educator, Dr. Ragan has served as a consultant to a wide range of faith-based and secular organizations.  Her research has explored the contours of traumatic grief, and she has done trauma work with first-responders and family members after 9/11, and with survivors of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Social Workers and mental healthcare professionals are encouraged to register for this one day conference.  Continuing Education Credits are available for New York State LMSWs and LCSWs.
