We are very excited that Dr. Katz will be present at the 2019 conference.
Richard Katz, PhD, received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Harvard University and taught there for nearly 20 years. Over the past 45 years, he has also lived and worked with Indigenous Elders and healers around the world — including the Ju/’hoansi of the Kalahari Desert, the Fijians of the South Pacific, and the Cree and Saulteaux First Nations of Saskatchewan. Richard is currently Professor Emeritus at the First Nations University of Canada and an adjunct professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. His books include Boiling Energy: Community Healing among the Kalahari Kung, Healing makes our Hearts Happy, The Straight Path of the Spirit, and most recently, Indigenous Healing Psychology: Honoring the Wisdom of First Peoples (2017). This book will be for sale at the lecture.
