Experience Naropa: The Effects of Substance Abuse in Our Culture

September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free Virtual Event

Join current faculty member Jetaun Bailey for a lecture on the significance of comprehending social justice in order to effectively address the problems associated with substance abuse in our culture and how they relate to transpersonal psychology and mindfulness.

The lecture will focus on a historical figure who became dependent on drugs and/or alcohol but was able to evaluate their addiction by looking at it through the perspective of social justice, changing both within and their community.

Jetaun Bailey holds a doctorate in professional counseling and supervision. She has worked at a substance abuse outpatient treatment center for persons without housing and has a range of counseling and evaluation experience. These roles involved more than just incorporating and helping the client understand the 12-step module. Many of these people’s lives were significantly impacted negatively by drugs and alcohol due to social problems. As a result, addressing social difficulties was crucial to many of these individuals’ success throughout therapy. As a result, Bailey generally ties social justice into her classes at Naropa University.
