The talk is free and will be streamed live.

The topic of the presentation is Gender, Depression and Social Change.  Depression is currently the third-ranked non-communicable disease, according to the World Health Organization. Although there are many differences in how depression manifests and is treated around the world, gendered patterns of coping and depression are broadly similar across most cultures, and therefore provide an excellent opportunity for intervention.

Dr. Benvenuti will draw on her experience from 24 years as a psychology and philosophy professor at Cerro Coso Community College; she was nominated for a Pulitzer in nonfiction in 2014, she is a poet and author of Spirit Unleashed: Re-imagining Human-Animal Relations.
