Currently he is finalizing a web-based database for accessing psychological literature that pertains to persons of African descent. He regularly consults with various local, state and national agencies and organizations regarding cultural diversity issues, working with different clinical populations, alternative approaches to psychotherapy, and other issues that aid the social and interpersonal functioning of persons of African descent.
