Ubuntu Program for Emotional Wellness

This program uses an integrative holistic approach to health that builds on cultural strengths. The balance of four key components—community, body, mind and spirit—is integral to the daily functioning, health, and emotional well-being of African Americans. This curriculum is distinct from other interventions in that it addresses the legacies of resilience and vulnerabilities from the historical trauma of slavery as unrecognized sources of stress in African American communities. (Lewis, et. al., 2013; Weil, 2013).
The Ubuntu Program for Emotional Wellness is brought to you by Take Action for Health, a collaboration of Anthem, Inc., City of Hope, the National Urban League, and Pfizer, Inc., and was created by Marva L. Lewis, PhD and Candice C. Beasley, DSW from Tulane University.
