Brown Bag Speakers Forum: Human Rights and Wrongs with Dr. Adrianne Aron
Human Rights and Wrongs: Reluctant Heroes Fight Tyranny
True and timely accounts of a psychologist’s work with refugee asylum seekers and others with traumatic
histories. Aron’s experienced and compassionate voice rings out in the national debate on immigration reform and the refugee crisis.
Dr. Adrianne Aron studied political theory at U.C. Berkeley and later earned a Ph.D. in psychology from U.C. Santa Cruz. She was for many years clinical director of a pro-bono service for Central American refugees. For respite from her long hours with traumatized refugees she took up writing fiction and little essays of creative nonfiction and, on receiving awards in both genres, was encouraged to write Human Rights and Wrongs in the style of a collection of stories to make the book accessible to the general reader—the audience a liberation psychologist always wants to reach.
