HIGHER LEARNING: HIP-HOP THERAPY AND PSYCHOLOGY
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Join Dr. Edgar Tyson, Lauren Gardner, and Debangshu Roychoudhury from Fordham University as they discuss the advances in Hip-Hop Therapy and Psychology derived from their annual conference. Hip Hop Psychology is a school of philosophical inquiry which seeks to use the artistic components of Hip Hop (movement, visual art, music production and emceeing) as a means to provide a culturally sensitive, multi-linguistic way of expressing in a therapeutic or medical context.http://www.hiphoppsychology.org
Higher Learning is presented as part of the Schomburg’s Hip-Hop 4.0 Initiative to examine the ways educators are using hip-hop culture to engage and teach K-12 students in classrooms and the community. Hip-Hop 4.0 is curated by Martha Diaz, founding director of the Hip-Hop Education Center.
