NPR Broadcasts on Diversity

February 23, 2002 - African-Americans, Psychotherapy,and Spirituality


"John Ydstie talks to Dr. Carl Bell, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Illinois, and Dr. Michele Balamani, director of Baraka pastoral counseling center in Maryland, about the stigma attached to seeking counseling among many African-Americans. One way that the psychiatric profession has tried to reach out to those in need is through church-based therapy groups. (9:00)."


September 30, 1998 Mentally Ill in China

NPR's Mary Kay Magistad reports that China is trying to come to terms with an increase in mental health problems among its huge population. The country's mental health facilities are very limited and sub-standard compared to those of the West. That's largely due to Chinese society's traditional attitude toward mental illness, something to be shunned or at the very least, ignored. (7:00)

February 6, 1997 Race Relations on Campus

Join Talk of the Nation for a discussion about race relations on college campuses. A panel comprised of a student, a faculty member and a long-time member of the University community will discuss what the role of the university is in promoting social integration. Along with an audience of students and educators they'll talk about the gap between good intentions and the way students really live their lives.

December 30, 1996 Diversity Training in Corporations

Texaco which recently reached the largest settlement in\n history in a race discrimination lawsuit, announced this month a\n plan to train its entire work force on diversity issues.
