Lantern is proud to have welcomed Dr. Richard Dudley Jr. to be our guest speaker at this month’s All-Staff Meeting at Amber Hall. Dr. Dudley is a nationally known expert in the fields of psychiatry and criminal justice, and has spoken in numerous forums about the impact of traumatization, particularly on young men of color. Dr. Dudley presented recent research on the impact of trauma, and gave advice on how best to provide trauma-informed social services. The presentation concluded with a productive and engaging discussion between Dr. Dudley and our team.
