The Disability Cultural Center is proud to present world-renowned psychology researcher Dr. Bruce K. Alexander, Professor Emeritus at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. Dr. Alexander’s pivotal Rat Park studies inspired new ways of thinking about mental health, addiction, recovery, and wellness countering the dominant “medical” or “disease” model. This discussion with Dr. Alexander will provide more insight into what addiction is, why it’s so widespread, and how we can think differently about recovery and wellness.

Please note, the maximum attendance is 30 people.

This event is co-sponsored by the Disability Cultural Center, Barnes Center at The Arch, the Falk College Addiction Studies Program, the Office of Disability Services, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
