Moderator: Dr Leah Brew, PhD

Dr. Leah Brew is currently the Department Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Counseling. She has co-authored books and journal articles in her areas of research: diversity, basic counseling skills, and supervision. She is particularly interested in researching the experiences of multiracial people, in understanding prejudice, and in teaching social justice. She has also worked as a biofeedback therapist working in two primary areas: peripheral biofeedback for stress-reduction and neurofeedback to treat attention deficit disorder. This experience has created an additional interest in understanding the connections between the brain, emotions, and overall wellness. Currently, Dr. Brew is excited about the new brain research and how healthy brain functioning seems to be related to and can be modified by attachment style.
