• Congratulations to Teraye Walker, Home-Based Therapist, Black Family Development, Inc., as she passed the State of Michigan Clinical Social Work Exam in January 2021. Teraye is a graduate of Michigan State University’s School of Social Work, and was one of six graduate students to be awarded a clinical scholarship. Teraye shared, “I feel blessed to be at Black Family Development where I have had the opportunity to increase my knowledge and develop skills to better serve young people in evidenced- based practices such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Parent Management Training, and Restorative Practices. I am excited to move forward in my clinical social work career providing therapeutic services to youth and families at Black Family Development.” Again, congratulations Teraye.
