DALLAS—Baylor University faculty and staff joined colleagues at Baylor Scott and White in Dallas on Saturday to host the Third Annual Gil Taylor Behavioral Health Symposium. The event focused on “The Impact of Behavioral Health Issues Across Generations.”
Austin artist Amie Stone King is proud to present her first art installation, Artifacts of Human Trafficking, at the Garland School of Social Work.
King first studied theatre as an undergraduate, then received a Masters of Art Museum Education. She has worked for years at various art museums, but found she wanted to do an exhibit on her own outside of a museum setting.
The road leading to the creation of Artifacts of Human Trafficking started nearly four years ago. King found out a friend’s sister had gotten caught up in a human trafficking situation. Thankfully, her friend and Child Protective Services were able to save the sister, but this story impacted King immensely.
WACO—Churches cannot heal people who experience grief, but like a cast provides support to allow a broken bone to mend properly, congregations can offer support as God gradually knits together lives fractured by loss, a Baylor University social work professor said.
This week, I talk with Dr. Holly Oxhandler, the Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development and an Assistant Professor at Baylor University’s Diana R. Garland School of Social Work. Holly studies religion/spirituality, health and mental health, and is especially interested in whether and how mental and behavioral health therapists discuss their client’s religious/spiritual beliefs in treatment.

Garland School of Social Work (GSSW); however, a partnership with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation is breaking ground by developing such a program specifically for couples tied to high-risk military and first responder occupations.
