All parents and members of the Park School community are invited to attend the Parents’ Association Opening Speaker via Zoom, scheduled for Wednesday, September 23, at 7:30 p.m.

Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith as she shares her expertise on the topic of Talking with Children About Race and Racism.
Dr. Briscoe-Smith earned her undergraduate degree from Harvard University.  She then received her clinical psychology Ph.D. from University of California Berkeley.  She then went on to continue her specialization in trauma and ethnic minority mental health through internship and postdoctoral work at University of California San Francisco/San Francisco General Hospital.  She has combined her love of teaching and advocacy by serving as a professor and by directing mental health programs for children experiencing trauma, homelessness or foster care.  Much of her work has been with schools, as a clinician, consultant and trainer.  Currently she is the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Wright Institute where she is a professor.  She provides consultation and training to Bay Area non-profits and schools on how to support trauma-informed practices and cultural accountability.
