Research

A sizeable portion of the work that I engage in with students during our travels to the Ukraine, Mexico, Turkey, Kyrgyzstan, Fiji, and Nicaragua involves assisting agencies who work with people who have faced varying degrees of trauma in culturally diverse settings. I have witnessed the ways culture can impact the experience of trauma. I have also found that it is educationally important for my students who may have lived most of their lives in a middle-class, mid-west setting, to see what many sisters and brothers endure around the world; the impact poverty has on well-being; and an up-close-and- personal-look at resiliency in the lives of people. This teaching and learning voyage impacts my research.
Currently, I am conducting research on the clinical outcomes of a particular group therapy intervention for trauma survivors in Nicaragua.
