Graduate Program in Social Anthropology, Master of Arts (MA) 2008

Since March 2010, Serena has been coordinating a psychosocial clinic in Leogane, Haiti. The clinic offers individual, group and home visit counseling sessions to clients who suffer from severe trauma and grief symptoms. This clinic aims to create a ‘transitional space’ which invites multiple cultural, spiritual and psychological interpretations, “experiences and treatment possibilities” into their therapeutic frames. Their psychological treatment is recast as being one of many explanatory frameworks. Prior to Haiti, Serena’s work included crisis counseling, community based programming, and research on therapeutic community spaces in Toronto, Paris and South Africa.
