ACKERMAN INSTITUTE

ACKERMAN INSTITUTE

The Ackerman Institute for the Family is one of the premiere institutions for family therapy and one of the best-known and most highly regarded training facilities for family therapists in the United States. 

One of the Institute’s hallmarks is its commitment to diversity and inclusion, and its vigorous efforts to expand the availability of mental health services to marginalized and underrepresented communities.  As part of this effort, the Institute offers its Social Work and Diversity program, a groundbreaking educational effort designed exclusively for therapists of color who are currently in graduate school.  

The Institute wanted a video to showcase this program, and profile four of its recent graduates, all of whom are now working in the mental health field providing service to communities in need.
