Two alumni of the Counseling Department, Drs. Tyce Nadrich and Ebony White, were featured in the American Counseling Association’s monthly magazine, Counseling Today, in an important article entitled, “Counseling While Black.”
Dr. Nadrich notes that diversity is not just about issues such as race, ethnicity, gender and religion; it is also about the way we communicate. He is an assistant professor clinical mental health counseling at Molloy College, and a licensed mental health counselor and coordinator of clinical training at Balance Mental Health Counseling in Huntington, New York.
Dr. White, an assistant clinical professor and the program director of the master’s in addictions counseling program at Drexel University in Philadelphia, points out that the counseling profession – like other smaller systems in our society – has largely tried to dismiss the role that racism has played and continues to play in the profession and society as a whole.
Additionally, the two are quoted often throughout the article.
