Dr. Roberts is CEO of Terrence Roberts Consulting, a management consultant firm devoted to fair and equitable practices in business and industry.
A graduate of California State University at Los Angeles (BA), and UCLA (MSW), Dr. Roberts obtained his Ph.D. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.
For thirty years Dr. Roberts was a practicing clinical psychologist first in Deer Park, California and later in Pasadena, California. During this same time period he held several high level positions in and was Director of Mental Health Services at St. Helena Hospital and Health Center (1977 – 1985); Assistant Dean of Student Services at UCLA’s School of Social Welfare (1985 – 1993); and Department Chair and faculty member in psychology at Antioch University, Los Angeles (1993 – 2008).
As one of The Little Rock Nine, Dr. Roberts has been in demand by a number of groups who wish to learn about the impact of the chaos in Little Rock on the social, cultural, political, and economic life of citizens in contemporary America. This especially true at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles where Dr. Roberts is a member of the adjunct faculty.
He regularly consult with law enforcement agencies at the local, state and national levels. His goal is to assist their officers develop more advanced understandings of the ways in which some of their attitudes about different others are established by their belief in systems founded upon mythological constructs and supported by pernicious ideologies promulgated by those who wish to preserve a static social hierarchy.
