A Letter to Our Community

The LMU Department of Marital and Family Therapy with Specialized Training in Art Therapy stands in solidarity with the fight against the ongoing racial injustices that have cost the lives of so many of our fellow citizens. We recognize the urgent need for change, which is long overdue.

We acknowledge the repeated cries for help, and the resulting pain, anger and helplessness in response to systemic racism and indifference existing in our society. As mental health professionals and educators, we will continue to strive toward providing creative therapeutic responses and reflective listening to this trauma and seek ways to support and empower the disenfranchised voices in our communities.
