Faith communities often function as what scholars have called “fictive kin,” playing important roles in many New Yorkers’ lives. Our May 10 Social Work and Religious Diversity conference will convene a panel discussion on Faith Families: Religious Kinship Beyond the Nuclear Family.

During this segment of the conference, we will hear from Rev. Dr. Willard W. C. Ashley, Sr., Dean of the Seminary and Associate Professor of Practical Theology at New Brunswick Theological Seminary, as well as the Founder and Senior pastor of the Abundant Joy Community Church in Jersey City, New Jersey. In addition to his work as a pastor and professor, he has served as a staff psychotherapist at the Riverside Church in New York City, and the Montclair Counseling Center in Upper Montclair, New Jersey.  He holds associate membership in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and the organization Black Psychiatrists of Greater New York.

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.
