Nancy Gonzales, PhD

Dr. Gonzales' program of prevention research focuses on the study of psychological risk and resilience with particular emphasis on cultural and community factors that impact academic success and mental health of low-income, ethnic minority children and adolescents. Her research includes testing the efficacy of a family-focused intervention to reduce school disengagement and mental health problems for Mexican American adolescents following transition to middle school. She is also involved in a longitudinal study of cultural, family, and community factors that shape cultural orientation and mental health trajectories for Mexican American youth, and a study focused on postpartum depression and its impact on mother-infant co-regulatory processes in low-income women of Mexican descent.
