Abstract: This workshop is based on a model developed and expanded upon by Dr. Landrum-Brown that uses the concept of worldview to help individuals develop understanding about the ways their social identities and their intersection (race/ethnicity, gender, social class, disability/ability statuses, etc.) influence individuals' lived experiences in the world. This model has two parts, the first part makes clear societal or group worldviews. The second part explores the personal worldviews of individuals. This interactive workshop helps participants understand the ways their multiple social identities intersect to create their unique lived experiences in today’s society. Within the model the interaction of both parts are explored to reveal how the interaction between one’s personal worldview and the society’s worldview provide a dynamic framework for understanding cross-cultural interpersonal and intergroup relations. Dr Landrum-Brown currently oversees the Intergroup Dialogue Courses offered through Educational Psychology and the OIIR. In addition, she has been teaching a Gen Ed course titled Exploring Cultural Diversity since Fall 2000. She has been working in the area of diversity & inclusion education and facilitation training for the last 39 years, including facilitating numerous workshops on a variety of Social Justice Education topics. She has also worked in this capacity through her private consulting firm, Landrum-Brown & Associates. She has published and co-authored several book chapters and articles in peer-reviewed journals. She is most interested in diversity and inclusion and social justice issues as they relate to preventive mental health.
