Teresa D. LaFromboise, PhD
Dr. LaFromboise's research interests focus on the current gaps of knowledge in the field of American Indian mental health. She has done extensive intervention work with American Indian teenagers and is interested in the impact of bicultural involvement in tribal cultures and the mainstream U.S. society on American Indian family functioning. In particular, her work has focused on urban American Indian extended family functioning and how that impacts family interactions with community members and reservation relatives.
