Helping the Greater Boston Community

We are on a mission

The Osiris Group (“Our Purpose, Our Passion, Our People.)

The Osiris Group was created to help professionals, parents, grad students, youth workers and others involved in working with the urban population understand the perspectives, view points and value selections that Black and Latino peoples present – as well as the importance that culture plays in these peoples daily lives.

How Cultural Inclusion Can Help

At the Osiris Group, we have devised three tenants that we would like for all of our clinical professionals to have: 

  • Culturally competent
  • Professionally trained
  • Professionally competent

Culturally Competent

Being culturally competent when working with black people is more critical than being professionally educated. Culture determines our belief systems, our values, and the choices that we make in our everyday environments. We want all practitioners to be more knowledgeable about the urban psyche and particularly the conditioning process that the African American urban psyche has undergone.

As Practitioners

If, as practitioners in the helping fields, we are in tune with the cultural conditioning processes that the urban black psyche has undergone, we will not only understand why the black psyche presents as they do, but more importantly, we will understand how to begin to reverse the self-destructive personality.

Culturally Disconnected

When clinicians, parents, or helping professionals are culturally disconnected from understanding how a black person is making sense of their world or the values that mental support specific choice selections, assisting professionals start to look for reasons to blame their failed interventions on the individual.
