Cuban Empowerment

As part of a five-day program sponsored by The World Psychiatric Foundation, Barry University School of Education professor, Dr. Paul Gallant, traveled to Havana, Cuba last January to give a presentation at a workshop about working with children and adolescents.

Gallant was an invited workshop presenter at “Encountering the Spirit of Community in Narrative Therapy and in Cuban Social Programs.” This program was a first-time opportunity for psychotherapists, mental health counselors and community agency staff members from Cuba and other countries to meet and share their ideas.
