Ryan DeLapp quoted in Washington Post and CNN articles


Dr. Ryan DeLapp, a Ross Center psychologist and the Director of the REACH Program (Racial, Ethnic and Cultural Healing), is widely sought out for his expertise in cultural stress and childhood concerns. This week, Dr. DeLapp was featured in articles published in both the Washington Post and on CNN.

In the Washington Post article: Parents can help children learn to stand up to hate. Here’s how, Dr. DeLapp explains the impact of hate speech on tweens and teens actively exploring their identities. He offers helpful suggestions for parents, encouraging them to help their children “develop an awareness of others’ experiences by exposing them to situations where they’re not in the majority.”

Dr. DeLapp was also consulted in this article on CNN.com: How parents can help kids overcome five common friendship hurdles.

This story provides suggestions for parents to help their children navigate the confusing world of friendships. Dr. DeLapp gives examples of questions that parents can ask to help children understand what to expect from friends.

Dr. DeLapp works with children, teens, and young adults, seeing patients in person in our New York office and scheduling virtual appointments with older teens and adults from Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia. Learn more about Dr. DeLapp here.
