February 2: When Schools Fail Our Young: A Glimpse into The Contagious Nature of a Poorly Understood Psycho-Emotional Affliction All Too Common Among Urban Youth of Color
Rev. Marsh Agobert (he/him), Worship Leader
We know that most of the ‘behavioral problems’ of urban youths are learned adaptations to their immediate environment. Yet schools and many social organizations are still ill-equipped to adequately recognize even the most common and hence provide effective supports. Can a spiritually based community be of use?
Marsh Agobert is an ordained Unitarian-Universalist cleric who ministered to the First Unitarian Church of Oakland in the 70s and 80s. He has long practiced psychotherapeutic treatment and has successfully worked with individuals, couples, families and the actively psychotic. Marsh is an experienced management consultant (he prefers small and mid-sized businesses) and a life coach, which well utilizes his broad background. Marsh has extended experience in several spiritual practices including martial arts, and other yogas.
