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 and Q&A with Dr. Alexander is open to anyone seeking to learn more about what addiction is, why it’s so widespread, and how we can think differently about recovery and wellness.
This event is co-sponsored by Barnes Center at The Arch, the Falk College Addiction Studies Program, the Office of Disability Services, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
