Microsoft TEAMS

Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Virtual Event

Jasmine A. Mena, PhD, is an associate professor of psychology and an affiliate of the Latin American Studies Program at Bucknell University. She is a licensed clinical psychologist who completed her training at the University of Rhode Island. Her research examines the influence of cultural and contextual factors on physical and mental health and quality of life. She uses a critical and multilevel approach to examine three interrelated scholarly areas: 1) the influence of discrimination on psychological distress, 2) psychosocial determinants of health disparities, and 3) equity, diversity, and inclusion in the teaching of psychology.

In her talk she will discuss how colonization helped to shape the field of psychology and will gesture toward decolonization of Latinx psychology, a growing subarea.
