THE URBAN PASTORS PROJECT
I was the P.I. of a John Templeton funded study where 48 pastors with churches in two urban cities were interviewed. The goal was to identify their lived experience of counseling in their urban context.
COPING AMONG ETHNIC MEN SEXUALLY ABUSED AS CHILDREN
I was the program director of an NIMH funded project that studied adult men from three ethnicities who had forced sexual contact as children. Biologic and psychological specimens were obtained.
AFRICAN AMERICAN ACT
Via several small studies, pilot projects, and systematic research synthesis, I developed a culturally-tailored Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model. The corresponding materials (metaphors, psychometric tools, etc.) are in current development.
