Part of the Inter-religious Relations seminar series.

About the speaker

Glen Milstein is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at The City College of the City University of New York, where students come from 110 countries. He teaches Immigration Psychology, as well as the Civic Engagement of Religion. Each is studied from a lifespan development and prevention science perspective, which can elucidate both resilience and risks. His research investigates and facilitates the intersections of religion and mental health, as well as immigration and psychological resilience. Milstein's team developed and implements the Clergy Outreach and Professional Engagement (COPE) paradigm to create programs that promote collaboration between faith based organizations and health or education professionals, which improve the continuity of wellness and acculturation. They have worked with community mental health centers, local schools, the Red Cross, as well as the United States Military and Veteran Affairs. Dr. Milstein lectures locally, nationally and internationally. Central to all this work is helping persons to develop or regain their own sense of “home”.
