Adult Forum - Teresa Mendez, "The Sublime Psychology of Baltimore"

Baltimore has a certain psychology, a sublime sensibility at once obvious and ineffable, not unlike the unconscious itself: tender and tough, wounded and surviving, swaggering and fearful, Northern and Southern, black and white. In this talk we will touch on the psychological, social, and intellectual history of Baltimore. Teresa Méndez, MSW, LCSW-C, is a clinical social worker and graduate of Princeton University and the Smith College School for Social Work. A former journalist who has written and presented on psychotherapy and the intersection of race, ethnicity, and culture, she maintains a private practice in Baltimore.
