Janine Jones, associate professor and director of the UW College of Education's school psychology program, will take part in a panel presentation and discussion sharing faculty experience, research and insights on strengthening resilience in children and families, particularly in those facing adversity. Faculty will present their research advances, opportunities to learn from community partners, and lessons learned in their work in understanding children's and families' well-being in contexts where families are experiencing adversity, particularly in diverse communities. Faculty presentations will be followed by a panel and an opportunity for audience Q&A.
Jones' research focuses on multiculturalism and culturally responsive mental health interventions. Her work underscores that multiculturalism is a context for resilience that reduces the negative impact of life’s unavoidable stressors on the well-being of children and adolescents of color.
This event, organized by the UW Center for Child and Family Well-being, is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
