Joe Gone Delivers Psychiatry Grand Rounds Keynote Address
Joseph Gone (Associate Professor of Psychology & American Culture, University of Michigan) returned to Yale this Spring to deliver this spring’s Psychiatry Grand Rounds Keynote Address for the Division of Prevention and Community Research within the Yale Medical School. Entitled, “Cultivating American Indian Culture as a Remedy for Substance Abuse: Creation of an Indigenous Intervention,”
Dr. Gone’s address showcased recent program-building and culturally sensitive approaches to American Indian mental health concerns. Building upon his research with the Blackfeet Nation of Montana, Dr. Gone highlighted innovative measures aimed at providing both cultural enrichment and preventive guidance to tribal community members.
It was his second presentation at Yale this year, following his participation in the November conference, “Indigenous Enslavement and Incarceration in North American History.”
