|Almeida, Rhea V., PhD, LCSW, DVS|
Rhea Almeida founded the Institute for Family Services in 1980. Dr. Almeida has written on domestic violence, Asian Indian families, mentoring, and unexamined assumptions in service delivery systems. She is author of two books, Expansions of Feminist Theory Through Diversity (1994, Haworth Press) and Transformations of Gender and Race (1998, Harrington Park Press) and numerous journal articles. She is currently working on a book that will describe her approach to family therapy: Using Social Justice as Your Guide to Family Therapy. Her unique approach to working with violence, families, and culture has received national and international attention. Specifically, expanding connections between men as "batterers" and men as sponsors from the community, she has bridged a population of men otherwise disconnected from one another. She has been on National Public Radio, CNN, CNBC, and numerous newspapers including the L.A. Times. The UTNE Reader in February of 1997 described her as one of the nation's top ten cultural healers.
