Dr. Susan Pick is a social psychologist who has used her expertise to change the behavior of Mexico’s marginalized. By teaching them what she calls “life skills,” she helps boost their feelings of self-worth and enhance their problem-solving abilities.

Without skills and knowledge the opportunities for those with little means are limited. They are also dependent on the government and others to solve their problems.

Dr. Pick’s instruction assists them in handling their finances and helps them learn tasks that enable them to secure a job.
