This week, I am joined by Dr. Raquel Martin, a seasoned clinical psychologist. She helps examine the implications of oppression on mental health and sheds light on the myriad ways it manifests in our lives – for both adults and children.
Dr. Martin is an experienced licensed clinical psychologist, devoted professor, acclaimed researcher, and scientist who believes deeply in the power of Black mental wealth. In this episode, Dr. Martin introduces the intriguing concept of “no capes” and redefines our understanding of societal expectations. She also offers insight on the crucial subject of “culturally incompetent care,” providing invaluable insights for professionals in the field.
