The Smith College School for Social Work (SCSSW) Summer Lecture Series will continue Monday, July 16, when Larry E. Davis of the George Warren Brown School of Social Work presents results from a five-year study of 270 African-American students from a St. Louis high school. Davis' study examined the relationship between the students' perceptions of self and their decision to complete high school.

On Friday, July 20, consultant and author Robert Evans, director of the Human Relations Service in Wellesley, Mass., will explore the professional and personal challenges facing human service workers and will outline ways for them to maintain perspective and cope constructively.

Luis Zayas will discuss "Implications for Clinical Work with Latino Populations," on Saturday, July 28. The director of the Center for Hispanic Mental Health Research at Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Service, Zayas will present information important to those working with children and families in Latino communities.
