The psychology of Caribbean people at home and abroad

Carla and I were lucky enough to be invited to present on work in progress to a supportive audience at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus. The closing performance by Sharon-ann Gopaul McNicol was fitting the the setting, the Old Dramatic Theatre. Dr. Gopaul-McNicol spoke about the need for psychologists to consider the field of politics as an arena of activity, and the still too evident challenges of addressing the colonial mindset far after the political independence of Caribbean states. In all, a thoroughly enjoyable presentation with its mixture of exhortation and evangelism. We all left with a renewed sense of purpose.
