Family & Community Engagement

As a child of a single-parent mother reared in the housing projects while spending summers on a farm in rural Virginia, Dr. Adolph Brown is an advocate of strong families & strong schools.  It is as a result of his strong family and strong schools that he is now a clinical and educational psychologist, tenured full professor, author, businessman and research-scientist.  As a parent, family and community engagement speaker, Dr. Adolph Brown is first and foremost a husband and a father of eight.  Dr. Brown knows that rearing children is not easy and does not come with guidelines, instructions or a pause button.  Dr. Brown has experienced many adventures in parenting from early childhood education, parenting a child with special needs to parenting adult children.  He has also counseled diverse families in crisis (divorce, co-parenting, single-parenting, adoptive, gay or lesbian, immigrant, migrant, bi-racial, multi-racial, trans-racial adoptive, blended, broken, co-custody, extended, conditionally separated, foster and transnational families) for over three decades.  Dr. Brown shares what successful culturally-responsive family & community engagement looks like, how to do it, and its wondrous benefits due to his unique success in the practical & fun application of family engagement research.  His family and community engagement philosophy takes you to the frontlines of social justice advocacy and inspires you to positively impact the world.
