Sangeeta Prasad is a psychologist who engages in long term family work in a mixed income practice. She is an adjunct Professor at The George Washington University’s Human Services and Social Justice program. Dr. Prasad worked for many years at the Reginald S. Lourie Center for Infants, Young Children and Families and then at Kindred as Senior Advisor and Facilitator in developing and facilitating racial equity groups among parents. Her areas of experience include early intervention to prevent the continuation of transgenerational trauma in families, addressing racism in clinical practice and in dialogue spaces, and cultural training focused on adapting psychological practice to meet the actual needs of minority communities. Dr. Prasad obtained her undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis in Spanish and International Studies, her Masters from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education in Risk and Prevention Counseling and her Doctorate in Psychology from The George Washington University. Dr. Prasad’s experience in cultural training stems from her internship at the National Asian American Mental Health Institute (RAMS), her experience co-creating and supporting grassroots domestic violence interventions for BREDS India, and direct service work with vibrant, creative members of systematically oppressed communities who have taught her most of what she knows over the past twenty years.
